Acid Row. The name the beleaguered inhabitants give to their `sink` estate.
A no-man`s land of single mothers and fatherless children - where angry, alienated youth controls the streets. Into this battleground comes Sophie Morrison, a young doctor visiting a patient in Acid Row. Little does she know that she is entering the home of a known paedophile... and with reports circulating that a tormented child called Amy has disappeared, the vigilantes are out in force. Soon Sophie is trapped at the centre of a terrifying siege, with a man she has come to despise. Whipped to a frenzy by unsubstantiated rumour, the mob unleashes its hatred.
Against authority... the law... and the `pervert`. `Protecting Amy` becomes the catch-all defence for the terrible events that follow. And if murder is part of it, then so be it.
But is Amy really missing?
