Hurting Too Much

Shocking Stories from the Frontline of Child Protection

Hurting Too Much

Detective Sergeant Harry Keeble's bestselling books, Baby X and Little Victim described his early years in Hackney's Child Protection Unit, as he battled to get to grips with cases of horrific child abuse. In Hurting Too Much, a more experienced Harry relates a series of extraordinary cases he encountered with Ella, a young and newly qualified social worker. Together, Harry and Ella face the violence of forced marriage, the horror of maternal incest and the cruelty of child slavery. As the unrelenting caseload threatens to push the inexperienced Ella over the edge, Harry uncovers one of the most shocking cases of child abuse he's ever witnessed, forcing the duo to tread new ground in the search for justice. Harry's searing account reveals why working in Child Protection has never been so tough. It also shows why, despite the fact that so many courageous people are ready and willing to meet impossible challenges, we are still unable to reach all of the children who so desperately need our help.
