BEHIND A CLOSED DOOR
Housing officer, Josie Mellor loves the community spirit of the notorious Mitchell Estate – when it doesn’t involve benefit cheats, aggression, or vandalism, that is. A natural problem-solver with her tenants’ best interests at heart, Josie throws herself body and soul into finding the culprits when a spate of burglaries causes havoc on the estate, and deadly violence erupts.
Kelly Winterton’s partner has just been sent to prison. Charlotte Hatfield has fled from her violent partner. Amy Cartwright has learning difficulties. She finds it hard enough looking out for herself and her baby without being taken advantage of. And those are just the tenants that Josie is trying to help.
But Josie has secrets of her own. Trapped in a loveless marriage, she struggles to escape her controlling husband. As Josie’s home life deteriorates, she realises only a thin line separates her from the people she’s trying to help. Can Josie save herself and return the estate to relative normality, or will both she and her tenants become victims of violence?
