Framed for murder. Now she's free . . .

A woman attends a funeral, standing in the shadows and watching in agony as her sons grieve. But she is unable to comfort them - or reveal her secret.

A decade earlier, Heather gets her children ready for bed and awaits the return of her husband Liam, little realising that this is the last night they will spend together as a family. Because tomorrow she will be accused of Liam's murder.

Ten years ago Heather lost everything. Now she will stop at nothing to clear her name - and to get her children back.

*Calculating & Tense*

**4.5 Stars**

This was a tense and gripping story. Heather never thought that her life would be ripped apart overnight. That’s exactly what happens. She feels her husband Liam is holding things back and after an argument she storms off to bed not knowing that she would never see him alive again.

As she wakes up with not much recollection as to why she feels so groggy, her world as she knew it would never be the same. Liam is no more and upon questioning the evidence all points to her and soon to her shock she is arrested and charged with murder and locked up.

Ten years later after after being let out on licence early she wants answers and no one will stop her as she fights to get her children and her life back.

But, she has an unlikely ally in her sister in law who appears to be on her side, plus a journalist who wants to help her find the truth. As she gets closer to the truth things get very dangerous. But in her cause trying not to break the terms of her release she soon realises that the ones she puts her faith in doubts are forming and who she never doubted will show a side of their character that she never saw coming in a calculated twist at the end.

All was not as it seemed and the evidence did not seem to be checked out enough, I wonder if the investigation was more thorough if the outcome would have been the same
