Paula Daly, Golden Dagger shortlisted author of six novels including Deep Water (made into a TV series starring Anna Friel), is back with a cunningly plotted, page-turning thriller about injustice, tough choices and buried pasts. Clear My Name is the complex story of a murdered lover, a wrongfully imprisoned woman and a crusading lawyer who finds that the dark secrets she’s uncovered may help get an innocent woman released from jail, while simultaneously ripping that woman’s carefully assembled life and everything she cares about to shreds.
