FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE THROWAWAY CHILDREN.
A man murders his wife and goes on the run. In the most dangerous decision of her life, a lonely young mother takes pity on him and offers him refuge.
The man is Jimmy Randall, who, in The Throwaway Children, murders Rita and Rosie's mother, Mavis, before disappearing. This is the story of what happened next, as he borrows his father's army uniform and masquerades as a soldier, fooling lonely Elsie Tarrant into thinking she has found a wonderful new lover, little knowing that he is a wanted man and a murderer.
