When a man fails in his attempt to murder his wife and then commit suicide, Detective Constable Maggie Neville is assigned the surviving woman’s family liaison officer.
As the husband lies in a coma in hospital, the wife sets about making sure everyone knows he’s guilty. But there’s something about her story that doesn’t ring true to Maggie. Digging deeper, the officer finds an unexpected link between the couple’s case and a series of burglaries she and her CID colleagues had previously been investigating in the Mansell area – and the mysterious disappearance of a young woman 20 years ago.
Meanwhile, Maggie’s still conflicted about her feelings towards DCI Will Umpire, who’s now in the throes of a divorce, and she’s also struggling to accept her sister Lou’s new boyfriend. Charming on the surface, he thinks Lou’s three children should come second to him now – however dire the consequences.
