A stand-alone novella published by Arrow Books in 2006
What you do in childhood may come back to haunt you. Stealing things from people who had upset her was something Polly did quite a lot. There was her Aunt Pauline, a girl at school and a boyfriend who left her. And there was the man on the plane.
Humiliated and scared by a total stranger, Polly does what she always does. She steals something. But she never could have imagined that her desire for revenge would have such terrifying results.
