"I slit someone's throat", the man told the woman on the 4:20 from Waterloo to Portsmouth.
Two strangers. One shared interest. Murder. Ben slit a man's throat. Sandra's son, Carl, witnessed a murder.
With Carl on a witness protection program, Sandra fled London to live anonymously in a remote village on the Isle of Wight where she becomes increasingly isolated and vulnerable. Terrorized by an unknown stalker, the police are unable to help and she turns to Ben.
What makes a respectable, middle-aged woman want to sleep with a killer? More importantly, can the relationship give her the love she craves and help Ben find redemption?
Hate, fear, and lies boil over in an addictive listen with love at its black heart.
