This is quite the event. Sophie Morrison, a young doctor, goes to a house to treat a patient. She doesn't realize when entering that the house contains a pedophile and his difficult father. Word has reached the street that the pedo lives there and residents are demanding his removal. The demands turn into a mass demonstration that threatens to get ugly.

Meanwhile, Sophie is stuck inside with the father making threats, both oral and physical, and she has no safe way out. On the outside, the mob has gotten so large that it endangers many people. An unlikely hero arises.

I found it absorbing and compelling.
