In a lawless backwater terrible deeds are done with good intentions. Ruth Edwards’ father died when she was a baby.  So it’s a shock to discover – two months before her first child is due – that he’s only just died.   Emptying this stranger’s home that’s now hers, meeting his friends and neighbours, Ruth pieces together fragments of the man she’ll never know, and questions who she is as a result.  But too late Ruth realises there was a good reason why this much-loved pillar of his local community was dead to her before.  A crime thriller set in the Gwent Levels, Wales.
