What you need to know before your trail

What is your babysitter doing when you’re not there? Fifteen-year-old Ashleigh is clever and charming, all too ready to rush to the rescue of parents in need of relief, and she soon becomes the neighbourhood’s favourite babysitter. But she has an appetite for secrets. Fast-paced, witty and scalpel-sharp, One Woman Crime Wave examines the limits of what money can buy, and how easily the fragile web of middle-class privilege can be torn. In the end, is it really Ashleigh who’s the problem, or is it the fractious and divided community she exposes?

Travel Guide


Location is not strong here but what is strong is the danger and mystery that lies all around – in your home and if you have someone come in to look after your children.

Homes up and down the country will be thinking of this book if they have a babysitter. Claustrophobic and lonely.

Some talk of the Olympics and the Holloway Road.
