Tallie has always been normal. Just a girl at school living with her mum.
But that's all changing now.
After her mother was murdered, and the murderer never charged, she took matters of law into her own young hands. But it all went wrong. She's got to escape before everyone realises the crime she's commited. Living in a hut on a deserted moorland is her only option. Until David arrives.
He can help her; he's a police man, the only one on her side. Soon Tallie is deeply in love with David, but is he all he says to be? Or is he in fact the very man she is running from?


2. Why they're coming

The day after mother was murdered, the police called the case off. There ' wasn't enough evidence'...junk if you ask me. But it was over with the law, so I obviously gave up. Not. I took the law into my own hands. That very same night, I lay awake, formulating a dreadfully risky plan. However dangerous it might have been, it was my only option, if I was to truly avenge my mother's death. I got up at around a minute past midnight and pulled on my all-black cat-suit I wore for a Halloween party last year. Whilst tying up my hair that I'd finally been allowed to have dyed a dark purple just the other month, I'd thought through every little detail of the excursion. My brain is quite good at coming up with solutions to difficult problems, so soon all the issues were ironed out. I'd grabbed a hefty bread knife from the kitchen drawer, and it fitted comfortably in my palm, the rubber handle easy to grip onto. Kitted out for an operation like that night's was, I set off into the inky streets. All I'll say is that, when the postman's wife came to wake him up the next morning, she got a nasty fright. ~ That's why the police are coming tonight. I've prepared a whole story for them, thinking up millions of serious questions they might ask me. Somehow, I feel calm, as if I'm lying on soft sand, the waves just rolling over me, cool and fresh. Everything is covered; I won't let them win. If they convict me, then I'll have to make another plan, but if my mind is correct, I won't need to make that plan. I am Tallie, and I WON'T give up without one hell of a fight!
