'A Sliding Doors thriller with a moral dilemma at its heart. Brilliant' Claire Doulas, bestselling author of Last Seen Alive

It's the end of the night. You're walking home on your own.

Then you hear the sound every woman dreads. Footsteps.Behind you. Coming fast.

You're sure it's him - the man from the bar who wouldn'tleave you alone.

You make a snap decision. You turn. You push. Your pursuertumbles down the steps. He lies motionless, face-down on the floor.

Now What?

Call 999
Wait for the police to arrive. For judgement, for justice,whatever that may be. You just hope you husband, family and friends, everyoneyou love, will stand by you.

Stay silent. You didn't mean to do it. You were scared, youpanicked. And no one saw. No one will ever know. If you leave now. If you keepquiet. Forever.

Which is it to be?
