Alex Lake's day job is all about helping people, especially children. She cares about them passionately and does everything in her power to rescue them from those who mean them harm. When the case of three-years-old Ottilie Wade comes to her attention, Alex finds herself completely unable to detach from the child the way she should. She feels an overpowering need to make a real difference in little Ottilie's life, but no one is prepared to believe that Ottilie is in danger. In the end, Alex makes a decision that has consequences for her, her family and Ottilie - consequences that no one, least of all Alex, could have foreseen.

Couldn't put it down and read right through the night! What a gifted storyteller. Child protection isn't even a general interest of mine. I have ordered the sequel and hope it's as good. I guess publishers weekly doesn't realize the amount of paperwork and involvement that social workers need to do before intervention can occur. I did not find it repetitive or poorly written at all.
