Emma Hunt has spent fifteen years raising her two sons Theo and Jacob on her own, and has created what she sees to be a happy and stable life for them, despite the challenges of Jacob's Asperger's syndrome.
Jacob's behaviour has sometimes frustrated Emma, but she has never doubted her son's good heart. Yet when his tutor is found dead, suspicion begins to surround Jacob and the Hunt family, who have never fitted in.
Now, as more and more evidence links Jacob to the crime, Emma is determined to prove her son's innocence.
Can she believe in it?
