Struggling to cope after a vicious attack, desperate not to reveal what's happening under the skin, Bev is fighting for survival. But when you barely trust yourself-who can you rely on?
Her lover's moving on, her guv's losing patience, her new DC is Mr. Bean in a fat suit and just when it appears things can't get any worse... the death threat arrives. Then the ransom note. Then times really get hard.
