Ice Queen. Angel of Death. Innocent victim?
Cold, unsympathetic, pilloried by the press, despised by the public, Sandra Morton has always maintained her innocence, but her attempts to overturn her conviction for the brutal murders of her husband and two infant children have been repeatedly knocked back.
When Sandra’s solicitor asks criminology lecturer Anna Scavolini to review the evidence, Anna is initially reluctant to accept. Soon, however, she becomes consumed by the case’s myriad unanswered questions, and by the enigma that is Sandra herself. Did she really do it, or was she merely a convenient scapegoat?
But Sandra herself is far from cooperative, and Anna has her own problems to contend with. She’s juggling work commitments with raising her three-year-old son, and to cap it all, her estranged, overbearing mother is back in town. Can Anna keep the case and her private life separate, or are they on an unstoppable collision course – with potentially devastating consequences?
