'You be a cheat and a liar, Katy Hawley, no wonder your folks d aint want you! Well we don t want you neither, do we girls?' It was only a playground spat but the cruel words burned like acid into Katrin Hawley s brain. But revenge is a dish best eaten cold and Katrin waited until she could hit her persecutors where it hurt. However, in her pursuit of vengeance, Katrin takes a fatal step too far . . .
Sunday Times bestselling author Meg Hutchinson's new novel chronicles the ruthlessly destructive quest of one damaged woman. Just as the stalwart men and women of the Black Country were pulling together for victory, Katrin Hawley sought only to satisfy her own malignant, vindictive craving for retribution.
Meg Hutchinson lived for sixty years in Wednesbury, where her parents and grandparents spent all their lives, but now has a quiet little cottage in Shropshire where she can indulge her passion for storytelling. It is a passion that has reaped dividends, with her novels regularly appearing in bestseller lists.
