DCI Lesley Clarke has too many suspects to choose from when a wealthy lawyer and her young boyfriend are found brutally murdered in a Sandbanks mansion.
Was it the victim's ex-husband, resentful at her new lifestyle? Her business associates, who she's recently angered? Or a drug addict employee?
Lesley and her team must unravel the evidence and find the real killer, while also investigating the disappearance of local journalist Sadie Dawes. Did Sadie go on planned leave, as her manager insists? Or did she get too close to the truth about DCI Mackie's death?
