Description

Acid Row. The name the beleaguered inhabitants give to their 'sink' estate. A no-man's land of single mothers and fatherless children - where angry, alienated youth controls the streets. Into this battleground comes Sophie Morrison, a young doctor visiting a patient in Acid Row. Little does she know that she is entering the home of a known paedophile ...and with reports circulating that a tormented child called Amy has disappeared, the vigilantes are out in force. Soon Sophie is trapped at the centre of a terrifying siege, with a man she has come to despise. Whipped to a frenzy by unsubstantiated rumour, the mob unleashes its hatred. Against authority ...the law ...and the 'pervert'. 'Protecting Amy' becomes the catch-all defence for the terrible events that follow. And if murder is part of it, then so be it. But is Amy really missing?

Professional reviews

"Minette Walters's stories always come as a surprise because with each new book her subject matter is different from anything preceding it. ACID ROW is the descriptive misnomer given by the tenants of a British housing development, where angry teenagers reign, inciting a riot when a young girl disappears and they find out that a pedophile dwells within. Although I did not finish the book--which does not shy away from the potential tragedy of the situation--I did hear the complete audiobook with the help of Gerard Doyle, who holds the listeners' hands, or ears in this case, and allows them to travel the violent streets unscathed. His genuine attention to what he is reading and his innate feeling for all of the characters make this an outstanding production. J.P. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
