“Please turn off the engine and get out of the car, madam.”
I was told to sit on a nearby wall whilst the officers took my car apart so efficiently, they could have been playing with Meccano.
I wrapped my arms around myself tightly, in a subconscious effort to hide the packages strapped to my stomach. Then all hell broke loose…
What had seemed the answer to Tilly’s problems had now turned into her worst nightmare. A happily married mother-of-three, Tilly was not the stereotypical criminal – in fact, she’d barely warrant a second glance if passed in the street.
“No one will stop you, Tilly. You’re Mrs. Average. Why would anyone suspect you?”
She’d only wanted to protect her family. If your whole life was under threat, would you make the same decision?
Based on actual events and real-life diary entries, Tilly’s story shows how quickly life can turn…
A gritty, gripping, true-crime read.
