A Life's Work
John T. Leonard
Oliver Bennett was only five years old when his mother was brutally raped and murdered and he came face to face with her killer.
Oliver has a strong and loving relationship with his father, but his childhood is deeply troubled despite psychological therapy and counselling. When Oliver decides to join the police force, his father is hopeful that Oliver has found a way to come to terms with his mother's death.
But Mary Bennett's killer has been released into the community after serving a life sentence. A murderer is free to live his life despite having cruelly ended a mother's life and forever blighted a child's future.
Has Oliver joined the police to dedicate his life to law and order, or does he have a more sinister motivation?
