By Anne Morgellyn
Christine was a top London lawyer, a woman who had everything.
But after she is found guilty of siphoning money from her clients, she is sent to jail.
Her cell-mate is an elective mute, a woman called Ruth – who was jailed for murdering the mother of the hard-line Judge Jeffreys.
And Jeffreys was Christine’s lover. A co-incidence? Christine is about to find out.
Back on the streets on probation, friendless and without a penny, she must re-build her life.
Christine takes a job as a gardener in Regent’s Park.
When Jeffreys tracks her down, their affair re-starts. She goes from sleeping in a hostel, to Audley Court- the palatial manor house the Judge inherited from his mother following her death. And from struggling on income support, she is given hundreds of pounds in cash to spend on clothes.
Things are looking up for Christine. Or are they? At work one day, Christine spots a homeless man poking at something in the water. A human leg.
Christine decides to remain silent about what she has seen.
But has her silence already made her an accomplice to another crime?
