But Clarissa has no memory of this. All she can remember is being cut free from the wreckage of her car that same morning, after what looks like a frantic getaway. As intimate details of her life and relationship are laid bare for the court, even Clarissa finds it hard to believe she is innocent. But murdering the man she loved in cold blood? She’s just not that evil – is she?’A genuine spellbinder.’ Publishing News’A most promising debut for the talented Humphreys.’ Marcel Berlins, The Times’A slick and gripping debut.’ Maxim Jakubowski, Guardian
