Is blood thicker than murder?
Who do you trust when everyone has something to hide?
Detective Inspector Ashley Goodman is on a mission. She needs a big case to put her career on track. And they don’t come much bigger than Miles Birchill, Downland’s wealthiest and most divisive resident.
DI Goodman seconds Kent Fisher to help her crack a cold case where the murder victim remains unidentified after 10 years.
Not for the first time, Kent has doubts about the case, forcing him to make choices he’d rather not make.
Caught in the middle, he has no alternative but to solve the murder, unaware that his every move is being watched.
