Shane Dunphy was working as a resource teacher in a rural town when he was approached by the mother of one of his pupils, seeking help. She is worried for her troubled young son, who has been found leaving the house late at night to go deep into the woods near their home. He has spoken of meetings with a friend, Thomas, but no one else has seen him or knows who he is. As Shane tries to discover what's going on, a sexual predator he helped bring to justice years before reappears. The man is looking to settle a score, and has picked someone close to Shane as his next victim. In The Boy They Tried to Hide, Shane Dunphy revisits cases he encountered during his time as a child protection worker and journalist and, in doing so, once again discovers that leaving the past behind is harder than it seems.

Kayleigh was a ghost of a girl when she arrived into foster mother Maggie Hartley's care. Pale, frail and withdrawn, it was clear to Maggie that Kayleigh had seen and experienced things that no ten-year-old should have to, that she's been conditioned to 'see no evil, speak no evil'. Kayleigh is in desperate need of help, but can Maggie get through to her and unlock the harrowing secret she carries? Through love, reassurance and patience, Maggie starts to unravel Kayleigh's painful past - a past defined by cruelty and abuse by the very people who should have protected her. Raised by a cruel aunt after her parents abandoned her, Kayleigh was abused, left to starve and wear rags, while her aunt's children lived a life of luxury. It's up to Maggie to help Kayleigh find her voice; to be a ghost no more, and bring those who've harmed her to justice.

'Lying in the prison of my bed, his dark silhouette closes in, a pillow in his hands. My throat tightens in fear...’ At the tender age of five, Madeleine was living a daily nightmare. In a dark, grey building on Jersey, she was just another orphan, defenceless and alone. She was also an easy target. Unbeknownst to the outside world, the care home manager was abusing her, using her like she was his toy. “Say nothing, no one will believe a nasty little kid like you,” he’d whisper.
