Summary
Why should Victor Jenner, the child of happily married, middle-class parents, succumb to such violent rages? Why should he have the need to make motiveless attacks on women? Victor didn't know. But Victor did know the last ten years in prison had been a mistake. He had never intended to harm anyone. It had all been an accident, his life had been a series of accidents, one mistake leading to the next. Now, out of prison at last, Victor still isn't free. The past prevents him from going forward, so Victor goes back and begins a chain of new accidents and a new string of tragic mistakes
Summary
After fourteen years in prison, rapist Victor Jenner attempts to pick up the pieces of his life but finds himself involved in an awkward triangle whose conflicts resurrect the buried demons of his violent past
