But as she tries to cope with her grief, she is shocked to find herself alienated from Alice's friends and relatives. They are convinced she somehow had a part to play in her friend's death.
Twelve years later, unpacking boxes in the new home she shares with her fiancé, Lizzie is horrified to find long-buried memories suddenly surfacing. Is the trauma of the accident finally catching up with her, or could someone be trying to threaten her new-found happiness?

"In unserer Stadt lebt eine Mörderin."
Joanna zieht mit ihrem Sohn Alfie von London in eine Kleinstadt am Meer. Zunächst ist es die pure Idylle – dann hört sie, dass die Kindermörderin Sally McGowan, die als Zehnjährige einen Spielkameraden umbrachte, unter anderem Namen in der Stadt leben soll. Vor Jahrzehnten machte der Fall Schlagzeilen, inzwischen ist Sally längst aus dem Gefängnis entlassen worden. Unbedacht erzählt Joanna anderen Müttern von dem Gerücht und ihrem Verdacht, wer die Mörderin von damals sein könnte. Sie ahnt nicht, was für eine verheerende Spirale von Ereignissen sie damit in Gang setzt. Und wie sehr sie selbst in diese Geschichte verstrickt ist.
