House Rules


‘Utterly gripping’ Stylist

Emma Hunt has spent fifteen years raising Theo and Jacob on her own, and has created what she sees to be a stable and happy life for them, despite the challenges of Jacob’s Asperger’s syndrome.

Jacob’s behaviour has sometimes frustrated Emma, but she has never doubted her son’s good heart. Yet, when his tutor is found dead, suspicion begins to surround Jacob and the Hunt family, who have never quite fitted into the community.

Now, as more and more evident links Jacob to the crime, Emma is determined to prove her son’s innocence.

Can she believe in it?
