Newly widowed, Nicola unexpectedly meets up with Matt, her childhood love. They have an affair – but just as he decides to leave his wife Michelle, Michelle suddenly disappears. When a body is then identified as hers, apparently a suicide, Matt’s infidelity is considered the primary reason by her grieving family. With more deaths and the evidence mounting against him, can Nicola really trust him? DI Barbara Forster seeks answers and help from Alice Myers, investigative journalist and creator of an edgy true-crime podcast, The Girl at the Window.

Unleashing an inexorable chain of events leading from a young woman’s disappearance and apparent suicide to the deaths of key witnesses, this intricately-plotted crime thriller depicts a race against time right until the shocking ending.
