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 control the streets. Into this battlefield 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 the unsubstantiated rumour, the mob unleashes its hatred against authority...the law...'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? The Sunday Express has written: Minette Walters has stormed her way into crime fiction. With her first three books she has claimed the highest accolades the crime writing world can bestow...A seductive writer with an imagination that makes her dangerous to know.
