They find themselves drawn into a crime that is both heinous and awful, a parent’s nightmare really, and as Natalie well knows the criminal justice system, she is convinced that the system is not always fair to those who have been harmed.
Natalie, devises a plan and in following this plan to its conclusion, she draws Will into its clutches.
