Every morning, the same path, the same route, the same time. Except when a wrong turning changes one man’s life for ever ... When Steve Ellison discovers the body of a neighbour’s six-year-old daughter – who strongly resembles a child who disappeared in similar circumstances 26 years earlier - it unleashes a sequence of events that turn his life upside down, overwhelm his family and the local community alike. DCI Neil Hunter immediately begins his investigation and the media invade Steve’s privacy, leaving him stunned, bewildered and ... the prime murder suspect. Not content to let the police do their work and increasingly frustrated at being relentlessly questioned, Steve has no choice but to try to clear his name as his marriage, his children and his reputation are all at stake. When his attempts fail, his journalist friend Alice Myers desperately risks her life to bring the killer to justice. Meanwhile a mysterious stranger checks into the village, a dark reminder from Steve’s past, and harrowing threats follow. The different strands of deception become entangled and together form a coarse noose that threatens to hang everyone. Life for all the characters spirals down into a vortex of intrigue and murder. Each new move simply makes the noose a bit tighter. Everybody has secrets. But when secrets are laid bare, the truth can wreak havoc – and kill. Revenge and unspeakable crimes converge on a sleepy Peak District village and there is ... No Way Back
