Fliss Benson is a TV producer struggling to deal with a personal tragedy in her own life. She receives at work an anonymous card which consists of 16 numbers arranged in four rows of four. These numbers mean absolutely nothing to her. At the same time, she is handed a particularly unwelcome assignment: she has to work on a documentary about cot death and three mothers accused (wrongly, it seems) of murder: Helen Yardley, Sarah Jaggard and Rachel Hines.
The controversial Dr Judith Duffy, who was responsible for the arraignment of the women after the death of their children, is now under investigation for misconduct, and the women have been set free. Fliss Benson’s reluctance to work on the film springs from a particularly personal issue - involving both cot death and the suicide of someone very close to her.

Sophie Hanna is among my favorite writers,however this book was not as good as others I've read by her. The idea for the story is good, but it gets dry and boring in places. I didn't feel as if I got to know the characters very well. And I was left with a lot of questions by the end of the book. Also, there weren't any Cliffhangers throughout the story making it not so exciting. I do not recommend this book.
"Excellent book - highly recommended"
The way in which the story was laid out made it two books for the price of one.
The suspense makes it hard to put down.
