Book Synopsis

Alex Hanson is a respected Anglican vicar caught up in events surrounding the rape and murder of a small child. Joe Bailey is a career criminal with an interest in meditation and a gift for violence. Their lives, and the life of Tessa Bromley, a young girl who loves rabbits and dreams of flying, are about to be changed in ways that can never be recovered.

Masks & Shadows is a complex exploration of guilt and innocence. Told through the voices of the main protagonists, it invites the reader into the murky world of the human psyche, where all is not as it may first appear. More alarmingly, the story crosses boundaries in such a way that it remains impossible to stay on the outside of the dark events described. Readers confront their own capacity for evil as the plot moves towards a shocking conclusion.
