    You watched your son kill a man. You don't know why he did it. But you have the chance to fix it . . .


    'A genre-defining masterpiece . . . An instant classic' HOLLY SEDDON

    'An extraordinary novel. Intricately plotted, beautifully written and impossible to put down' BETH O'LEARY

    Late October. After midnight. You're waiting up for your son. He's late.

    As you watch from the window, he emerges, and you realise he isn't alone: he's walking towards a man, and he's armed.

    You can't believe it when you see him do it: your funny, happy teenage son, he kills a stranger, right there on the street outside your house.

    You don't know who. You don't know why.

    You only know your son is now in custody. His future lost.

    That night you fall asleep in despair. All is lost. Until you wake . . .

    . . . and it is yesterday.

    And then you wake again . . .

    . . . and it is the day before yesterday.

    Every morning you wake up a day earlier, another day before the murder. Somewhere in the past lies an answer.

    The trigger for this crime - and your only chance to fix the future and save your son . . .
