Publisher's Summary

From the queen of white-knuckle suspense and searing family drama comes a harrowing glimpse into the real world behind the headlines. This is a novel of immense power and compassion - one that will move all who listen to it.
Tina is a young woman hiding from her grief on the streets of the Cross. On a cold night in the middle of winter, she breaks all her own rules when she agrees to go home with a customer. What she finds in his house will change her life forever.
Across the country Sarah and Doug are trapped in limbo, struggling to accept the loss that now governs their lives. Pete is the local policeman who feels like he is watching the slow death of his own family.
Everyday brings a fresh hell for each of them. Told from the alternating points of view of Tina, Sarah, Doug, and Pete, The Boy Under the Table is gritty, shocking, moving and, ultimately, filled with hope.

A Perfect Balance

The Boy Under the Table addressed a frightening topic for any parent and it addressed it with a perfect balance of grit, subtlety and compassion. I look forward to reading more by this author; once I have recovered from this....
