Summary

A boy lives with the emotional and physical abuse his father bestowed upon him and his mother before he was taken into care and adopted.

Edward is four years old when he is locked away with his mother by her abusive, alcoholic partner, Harris. By the time an elderly neighbour spots his pale face peering through a crack in the boarded-up window and raises the alarm, he is seven. Rescue comes, but lasting damage has been done.

Years on, it's clear to Edward's new adoptive family that something in his past haunts him still. Then Edward catches sight of a photograph that shocks him to the core. Could there be yet another monster in his life who has been waiting to break out all along?

NOTE : Includes some swearing and concepts that some readers may find upsetting. Edward tries drugs, but then becomes addicted to alcohol.
