Publisher's Summary

Write down something about yourself, as a mother, that worries you.

Psychologist Isabel Harris has come to the outback town of Riley because her husband, Dean, is assessing the hospital - the hub of the community - with a view to closing it down. Isabel, mostly occupied with her toddler, will run a mother-baby therapy group. But on the first day she gets an anonymous note from one of the mothers....

The baby killer is going to strike again. Soon.

Then a series of small harassments begins.

Is it an attempt to warn Dean off? Or could the threat be serious? A child was murdered in Riley once before.

As Isabel discovers more about the mothers in her group, she begins to believe the 25-year-old mystery of a baby's death may be the key to preventing another tragedy.

"Buist's own extensive background in psychiatry shines through." (Herald Sun)

"Suspenseful Aussie noir at its best." (New Idea)
