Publisher's Summary

Tom Seymour is a child psychologist who has worked in the north of England for many years. One day, while walking by a river near his home, he rescues a young man from drowning, and realizes that it's Danny Miller, a child murderer at whose trial he once gave evidence. Evidence he has since come to regard as flawed. Danny has served his sentence and is out of prison. But now he's asking for Tom's help.


What the Critics Say

"James Wilby gives a sensitive reading of this tale about relationships. He conveys all the complex feelings, confusion, distrust, longing, terror, without raising his voice. The story's mood is dark, and this nuanced reading is right on target." (AudioFile)

Border Crossing

Intriguing, compelling narrative which investigates the history of a boy convicted for murder as a child and the impact of his reappearance in the life of the psychologist who helped condemn him - beautifully and sensitively written and read by the fantastic James Wilby.

Attracts and holds attention all the way through

Very interesting and different story line. Well written and well read. I found the ending very slightly disappointing but overall I really enjoyed it. So much so that I immediately went back to the author to search for more of his novels but was disappointed to find that nearly all his others were set on the war field which is not my preferred genre. I would recommend this book highly
