‘Gripping and emotionally charged’ Clare Mackintosh

‘Emotionally compelling’ Chris Brookmyre

There’s a fine line between good and bad . . .

‘Big George’ McLaughlin is a bad person. He’s snatched a little girl from her family, and he’s not planning on giving her back.

But George is also inherently good. He loves this little girl and has kidnapped her with pure intentions. She’s his daughter and he wouldn’t do a thing to hurt her.

So when being together feels so right, why is it so terribly wrong?

Is there such a thing as good bad love?

From the Richard & Judy Book Club and international bestselling author of The Guilty One comes a suspenseful, gritty and emotionally charged journey of an estranged father and daughter, exploring the strength of family ties and our huge capacity for forgiveness.
