Gripping contemporary novel by Lottie Moggach.

A prisoner nearing the end of a seven year stretch inside winds up in an open prison in Brixton. Each morning, he exits the prison gates and begins the short walk to a local charity shop, where he spends the day in the backroom sorting through other people's discarded belongings. All he needs to do is keep himself out of trouble and, in a few months' time, he'll be out for good.

Among the bustle of commuters on Brixton Hill one morning, he sees a well-dressed woman fall over. He helps her up and they exchange a few words before parting, but she makes a lasting impression on him.
