Publisher's Summary

A simple theft leads to unforeseen tragedy in this story from the New York Times best-selling author of the Inspector Ian Rutledge Mysteries.

In a quaint, antiquarian bookshop in the Midlands of England, a woman is captivated by a rare gilt-edged devotional nestled within an exquisite and equally tempting box. Her desire to pilfer it overcomes her scruples, and her guilt and terror at doing something so audacious, so unlike her. With a simple sleight of hand, it's hers.

But this irresistible book of hours isn't in her possession for long. By chance, desire, and cruel twists of fate, it soon falls into the covetous grip of others - from a pickpocket to a schoolboy to a priest - as one woman's transgression sets in motion a dreadful chain of events.

This diabolically clever story from the New York Times best-selling author proves Stephen King was right when he said, "You're going to love Todd."

A predictable but enjoyable listen

It was a predictable story, but it was a good listen. Makes you wonder what you would do.
