“What time was it? She looked at her watch and shook her head. Pointless toy. Someone was hammering on a door. She perceived the insistent knocking, coming in waves through an open window to her right. There was a pause, and a voice could be heard, urgently shouting something. Then the knocking started again, but this time more furiously. The Woman paid no mind to it as she was lost in thoughts of a more serious and perplexing kind. Steven Frayne, could he part of this? Ridiculous notion! But, was he the catalyst? Everything which had happened had been out of character for her, but suggesting his involvement seemed tenuous to say the least. What other answer could there be?"

There's never been any reason to doubt her story, but when Ella receives an anonymous call insisting that Georgie has information about the Pieters’ case, she decides to dig deeper. As long-buried secrets and lies finally come to light, can Ella track down the killer before more people are hurt?
