Betty is running for her life. When Betty’s husband returns from the war broken and haunted, she knows her marriage is doomed.
Taking a fleeting chance to escape, she goes on the run armed with a new identity. Yet penniless and alone, Betty quickly finds that starting again is much harder than she thought. And she never imagined it could end in murder . . . But sometimes you have to keep running if you want to survive.
