*This novel contains coarse language, violence, and sexual themes.

Sonia yearns for sharp objects and blood. But now that she's rehabilitating herself as a "normal" mother and mathematics teacher, it's time to stop dreaming about slicing people's throats.

While being the wife of Melbourne's leading drug lord and simultaneously dating his best mate is not ideal, she's determined to make it work.

It does work. Until Mia, her lover's daughter, starts exchanging saliva with her son, Mick. They plan to commit a crime behind Sonia's back. It isn't long before she finds out and gets involved to protect them.

But is protecting the kids really Sonia's motive?

My guess is #2. Watching one's own breath in cessation. Whether my guess is correct or not, watching my own breathe is a daily practice. A breathe goes in, and out, exhausting all energies, held in from throughout the day. With the breathe and a quit mind, which does not cling to or deny any and all thought. Such a practice enables mindfulness of each breathe, and second of time throughout the day, or our lives.
