All she wanted to do was take her son's forgotten sports kit to
school. So why does Nicki Clements drive past the home of
controversial newspaper columnist Damon Blundy eight times in one

daubed on his wall - in red paint, not blood. And, though Blundy
was killed with a knife, he was not stabbed. Why? Nicki, called in
for questioning, doesn't have any of the answers police are looking
for. Nor can she tell them the truth, because although she is not
guilty of murder, she is far from innocent. And the words on the
wall are disturbingly familiar to her, if only she could remember
where she has heard them before . . .
