Tina believes the murderer is the rich and corrupt Roland Greyhill, her mother’s former employer and lover. After her mother's death, Tina spends the next five years living on the streets where she joins a local gang and works as a thief to support her younger sister. By the time she's 17, Tina is ready to put her plan for revenge into action by blackmailing and then killing her mother’s murderer. But she may not have all the facts and uncovering the incredible truth about who killed her mother and why could cost Tina her life.
