From the back cover

A young girl, molested and killed. One man, convicted of her death. Five lives, tangled in the web of this horrific crime... The release of Elizabeth Connor's killer, his conviction quashed on a technicality, reopens old wounds in those touched by the tragedy of the girl's death. Hate, revenge, indifference, murder: lives which were newly built are once again faced with horrors which are not of their making.
