Forensic psychologist Jill Kennedy and DCI Max Trentham investigate a crime in the quiet Lancashire village where Kennedy has made her home. A man with a dark past has been murdered after moving there from London.
While local residents are always wary of newcomers, one in particular seems especially determined to hinder the investigation.
