Cecilia Mayford has it all: her career is successful; her husband is an internationally renowned sculptor; and their baby is due in less than a month. But everywhere she goes, she finds people who are linked to her in the strangest ways. She feels trapped, haunted. Then one morning she is attacked in her husband’s studio, so badly beaten that her baby is rescued by Caesarean section only moments before she dies.
Her dangerously vulnerable husband, Sam, was recorded on CCTV entering the building at the crucial time. The police pick him up at once. In his terror and misery he turns to barrister Trish Maguire, who has her own links to both him and Cecilia. Fighting her grief, her pity for Sam – and her suspicion – Trish finds herself in conflict with DCI Caro Lyalt, her greatest friend and the senior investigating officer on the case.
Evidence against Sam mounts up. Cecilia’s powerful mother is pressing for his arrest. The police hierarchy want him charged. If Trish is to save his sanity, she must find out exactly what happened in the studio that morning, and time is running out…
