The Blurb:

It can happen to anyone... #MeToo

When Billie receives a letter from the man she loves, she returns home, determined to help him.

Desperate to prove his innocence, Stan is in prison, convicted of a crime he swears he didn’t commit.

Kelly, his victim, is struggling to cope after an ordeal that left her traumatised and lonely.

Whilst hiding a secret of her own and battling demons from her past, Billie is enlisted by the private detective who is looking for vital evidence that might set Stan free.

Billie has complete faith in Stan but when she hears Kelly’s version of events, cracks begin to appear and her faith wavers.

There are two sides to every story and Billie needs to get to the truth, but the deeper she digs, the more lies are unearthed.

Who will she believe?

And who is really telling the truth?

My Review:

 

This is an emotive story on so many levels, involving false allegations, wrongful conviction, and victims of physical and sexual abuse, hence the thematic title of #MeToo.
Stan has been convicted of rape and committed to Strangeways Prison. The indubitable evidence against him has convinced the judge and jury of his guilt, but Stan maintains that he has been set up by Kelly as payback for him breaking up with her.
After Stan had written Billie, his former girlfriend, a completely unvarnished story outlining the true events of what happened, this matched up with the Stan she had formerly loved, enough to give him the benefit of the doubt because she believed it was out of character for him to have carried out the foul deeds that he had been accused of. With this in mind she sets out on a mission to bring new evidence to support an appeal.
This powerful and compelling tale is a must read for fans of the psychological thriller genre.
