Hardback. Sitting in her cosy kitchen reading a newspaper article about a homeless woman found dead, the author was unaware that the fragile bubble of safety she had constructed around herself and her new marriage was about to be shattered. The shock came only a few hours later, when the police called to inform her the woman was her mother. Then the tumultuous memory of the author's painful childhood at the mercy of her mother's schizophrenia and eventual disappearance became an unavoidable terrible presence. While trying to come to terms with the reality that she had lost any chance of renewing a mother-daughter relationship, the author was faced with an even more startling and horrifying revelation: she learned that her mother had not only become one of the anonymous homeless but had been savagely brutalised and murdered. With the possibility of finding the murderer slowly slipping through her fingers because of an apathetic justice system, the author became determined to prove that the murderer's victim was more than just another crazy homeless person, but someone once loved and treasured who deserved vindication. When they refused to listen, it was up to the author to fight the legal wrangling surrounding her mother's death and to bring the killer to justice. With Epilogue. 304pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Vg+ in Nr. F. dw.
