Publisher's Summary

'I'm so sorry, Casey,' my link worker, John, said, sounding weary. 'I know this is probably the worst time I could ring you, but we desperately need someone to take a child tonight.'

It's the night before Christmas when Casey and Mike get the call. A 12-year-old girl, stuck between a rock and a hard place. Her father is on a ventilator, fighting for his life, while her mother is currently on remand in prison. Despite claiming she attacked him in self-defence, she's been charged with his attempted murder.

The girl is called Bella, and she's refusing to say anything. The trouble is that she is also the only witness....

Painful to listen to

The narration sadly makes this absolutely impossible to listen to. It is completely unnecessary for the narrator to put on a baby voice when speaking as a child character. Very disappointing.

Another fantastic offering.

This is another fantastic book by this author. Bella was clearly a lovely child and what her and her mother were put threw was horrid. It was a wonderful story and it just shows how much the children in her care come to trust Casey. She advocates for them and does whatever she can to make sure there given the care they deserve. Looking forward to future books by this author.
