Piatkus, hardback, 458 pages, €23.49 Lolly’s mother Angela doesn’t take much care of her, and is convinced she’s being watched and that her neighbours think she is totally batty.
When Angela dies, believed to have thrown herself off the tower block they live in, Lolly is left alone and has to fend for herself. Businessman Mal Fury — who clings to the hope that his infant daughter Kay, who disappeared years ago, is still alive — hears about this mysterious orphan.
Could she possibly be Kay? And can he and his beautiful if bitter wife Esther integrate this strange child into their lives? And can Lolly find out the real story of her strange mother and her background?
Mystery lite with a strong East End London accent.
