ChildMinder - Pay What You Can £15.00 / £12.00 / £10.00

Joseph, now a famous New York child psychiatrist, has returned to his childhood home of Edinburgh. But he's haunted. Not just by a past he thought he'd escaped. Not just by all he buried. But physically, in his swanky flat. He didn't realise it was the same place he assessed Sam that fateful day. Who turns hospitals into luxury apartments? But Sam's not left and now Joseph can't either. Meanwhile Cindy screams in labour, all the way over in Manhattan and Manahatta screams with her.
