Back Road, The

Performed by:
Sue Pitkin

From the author of the bestseller Only the Innocent. In a quiet country village, secrets abound. When young Abbie Campbell is knocked over and left for dead on the back road of the village of Little Melham, waves of shock ripple through the small community, threatening to expose long-kept secrets. For Ellie Saunders, the truth about that night puts both her marriage and the safety of her children in jeopardy — she has to protect her family, no matter what the cost. Her neighbor, former detective Tom Douglas, has escaped to Little Melham in search of a quiet life, but finds himself drawn into the web of deceit as his every instinct tells him that what happened to Abbie was far more than a tragic accident. In this gripping novel, the peaceful English countryside belies the horrible truths that lurk beneath the trimmed hedgerows, behind the closed doors of smart sitting rooms, and within unspoken conversations.

Sue Pitkin

Biography:
Artist and writer Sue Pitkin began her performing life as a moonbeam in a British Forces pantomime in Northern Germany, attracted as much by the treat of ginger ale in the dressing room and time off school as by the fun of the performance. These days her performances are mostly limited to audiobooks and her whiskey education program, pursuits which she has found complement each other perfectly.
