In a single day, a simple mistake will have life-altering consequences for everyone involved... A gripping domestic noir thriller from the author of Blame.

If you love Jodi Picoult, look no further than Nicole Trope, who may just be your cup of tea.' The Hoopla

All Malia needed was a single litre of milk and now she's surrounded by police and Zach has disappeared.

Detective Ali Greenberg knows that this is not the best case for her, not with her history - but she of all people knows what Malia is going through and what is at stake.

Edna is worried about the new residents at the boarding house. She knows Mary would turn in her grave if she knew the kinds of people her son was letting in.

And then there is someone else. Someone whose heart is broken. Someone who feels she has been unfairly punished for her mistakes. Someone who wants what she can't have.

What follows is a heart-stopping game of cat-and-mouse and a race against the clock. As the hours pass and the day heats up, all hope begins to fade.

'If you're looking for the Australian equivalent of Jodi Picoult, look no further than Nicole Trope, who is making a name for herself as a writer of provocative family dramas with hard-hitting issues at their core.' Hannah Richell, author of Secrets of the Tides
