The Back Road by Rachel Abbott
From the author of #1 bestseller – Only the Innocent.
One girl is fighting for her life in hospital… One village is struggling to hold tight to its secrets.
When a young girl is knocked over and left for dead at the side of the road, the small community of Little Melham goes into shock. Why was Abbie out so late at night, and why wasn’t she missed?
For Ellie Saunders, the truth about that night could put her marriage and even the safety of her children in jeopardy. She has to protect her family, no matter what the consequences.
Former DCI Tom Douglas thought that Little Melham would offer a peaceful retreat from the daily trauma of his work for the Met. But as he is drawn into the web of deceit, his every instinct tells him that what happened to Abbie was more than a tragic accident…
Only one person knows the whole story – why Abbie was out that night, and who was driving the car. For that person, the accident spells disaster, and somebody has to pay.

Redemption Blues by T D Griggs
CHRISTMAS, and it’s the end of the road for Matt and Lauren Silver’s tempestuous marriage. Rock star Silver has been touring abroad just once too often, neglecting Lauren and their twin daughters, Gudrun and Freya. In a desperate attempt to put things right, Silver cancels his tour and comes home for his children – but instead of the reconciliation he seeks he triggers a tragedy which will shatter all their lives forever. Silver’s car smashes though bridge railings into the River Thames. Little Gudrun is killed in the horrific crash and Silver himself vanishes into the shadows of underworld London, injured, traumatized, and unable to face what he has done. Lauren Silver is crushed by guilt, and young Freya is so emotionally scarred that no-one can reach her.
No-one except Inspector Sam Cobb, the detective sent to investigate the tragedy – a man with scars of his own. He only reluctantly enters the Silvers’ bleak world, but when he does he brings hope. Hope of recovery. Hope for the future. Hope of redemption.
But Matt Silver is not yet out of their lives. Disfigured and desolate, he has found comfort of a kind, thanks to the humanity of new and unexpected allies. Despite himself he has begun to heal, to grow stronger. To think of emerging from the shadows.
For Sam Cobb, Lauren and Freya there will come a time when hope alone is not enough.
