A day like any other for security chief Tracy Waterhouse - until she makes a purchase she hadn’t bargained for. One moment of madness is all it takes for Tracy’s humdrum world to be turned upside down, the tedium of everyday life replaced by fear and danger at every turn.
Witnesses to Tracy’s Faustian exchange in the Merrion Centre in Leeds are Tilly, an elderly actress teetering on the brink of her own disaster, and Jackson Brodie who has returned to his home county in search of someone else’s roots. All three characters learn that the past is never history and that no good deed goes unpunished.

“An intensely fascinating study into the effects of time and the constant battle between right and wrong.” (The List)
Started well, I had high hopes for the well drawn characters. But it seemed to peter out and the end left me feeling the opportunity for a really great story had been lost. A pleasant enough way to spend a few hours, but a great experience, it aint.
