In a marriage that has taken her from the glamorous five

that she has no choice. She has to give Tom Douglas the final piece of the
puzzle. And this changes everything, leaving Douglas with a terrible dilemma:
whether to punish the guilty, or protect the innocent.
ONLY THE INNOCENT is a spellbinding psychological thriller
that will leave you breathless!
"The author has it all here with darkness, abuse, degradation, drugs, sex and a murder. This is a well written novel and the plot is superb, nothing is given away to the reader. Several twists and turns. I highly recommend it."
"Excellent and intriguing start which had me hooked from the first page."
"A brilliantly written storyline that's hard to put down, I highly recommend this book and the author."
"The more I read ... the more I understood why someone would kill him, but even then the end-all reason knocked me back a few pegs. When everything was said and done I was left with the question that Abbott poses in her blurb, do you punish the guilty, or protect the innocent?"
