And Sephy has no one to help her after the baby's father was hanged for terrorism months ago. As her due date approaches, Sephy feels more and more haunted by her lost love.

But she's not the only one who misses Callum. His brother, Jude, hasn't forgottenor forgivenanything about what happened. And he blames Sephy for Callum's death. Jude won't rest until he's avenged his brother by murdering the girl who got him killed.
