Acid Row, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Acid Row. The name the beleaguered inhabitants give to their 'sink' estate.

A no-man's land of single mothers and fatherless children - where angry, alienated youth controls the streets.

Into this battleground comes Sophie Morrison, a young doctor visiting a patient in Acid Row.

Little does she know that she is entering the home of a known paedophile ...and with reports circulating that a tormented child called Amy has disappeared, the vigilantes are out in force.

Soon Sophie is trapped at the centre of a terrifying siege, with a man she has come to despise.

Whipped to a frenzy by unsubstantiated rumour, the mob unleashes its hatred.

Against authority ...the law ...and the 'pervert'. 'Protecting Amy' becomes the catch-all defence for the terrible events that follow. And if murder is part of it, then so be it. But is Amy really missing?

Good harrowing fiction - deals with real problems - but no answers!
