Corruption of the Son

(The second book in the Alardyce series)
A novel by

Edinburgh 1896
Amy Alardyce's once-perfect life is in tatters. Her eldest son, Robert, has come of age and with it has come a violent desire to hurt and cause pain. After his attack upon one of the maids, his true character is revealed to her in horrifying clarity, yet a mother's love is a powerful thing.

As Robert continues to descend into the darkness that claimed his now-deceased biological father, Matthew, Amy fights to save his very soul. The increasing distance between Robert and his stepfather Henry threatens the peace of her loving marriage and Amy has to face a stark choice - denounce her son as the monster he is or protect him from the consequences of his lethal actions.

However Amy too has a secret, one she prays Robert never finds out, fearing it might turn his deadly urges on her.
