LADY BETH is a psychological, urban thriller set in Dublin, Ireland, and packed with mystery, suspense and a compelling female protagonist. Beth Downes, seems like a quiet, unassuming woman. She is attractive, though careless in her appearance and works hard, living only for her teenage son, Jesse. When he dies suddenly following a drug-fuelled party with his girlfriend, a very different woman emerges, for she has been keeping secrets. Beth had always refused to tell Jesse who his father was, an issue that they fought about just before his death. Now, compounded by grief, guilt, regret and the need to find out the truth of who is responsible for her son's death, she will journey full-circle, back to her old life, before Jesse, to a sordid past, and to the man she tried so desperately to forget. She has come full circle, and with nothing left now but her memories and her knowing, the need for revenge and justice scratches inside her veins.
