Head StartBook - 2016
Jane Cowan's abusive ex-husband has always tracked her down whichever town she lives in, whichever job she takes, whichever name she uses.

While facing everyday battles from a lack of resources to teachers who are set in their ways, Jane encounters a persistent intruder on the school grounds. Then tragedy strikes: a child is badly hurt in the playground -- only Jane suspects that her fall was not accidental. And when another child suffers life-threatening injuries, Jane finds herself under suspicion. This time she will not be the prey but the pursuer...
