About this ebook

Alison and Simon lost their daughter to a careless driver who escaped serious punishment. Decades later, at a beach resort in Thailand, they meet other tourists who have suffered similar losses of people close to them, by death or suicide, including as a result of child abuse.

A casual conversation about whether killing a person is justified to prevent further abuse and deaths leads to a series of life-altering events for all of them.
