Description: No-one is mourning the death of Glen Taylor, least of all his widow Jean; she considers herself well rid of 'all of his nonsense'. She did her time standing by her man when he was accused of the abduction of a toddler, but now he is out of the picture, she is free to step out from behind his shadow and reveal ... nobody knows just what she will reveal, how much she knows and just what she should have known.

Giving voice to the experience of a spouse in the orbit of an evil-doer, this intriguing psychological thriller with its clever use of multiple narrators is gripping from beginning to end as the real Jean is slowly unveiled.
