What do an obsessed gardener and a dogged detective have in common? They’ll do whatever it takes to protect the women of the Storm family.
Two deaths, connected by several decades, cause the Storm’s dark secrets to unravel. When Charles Storm is killed in 1968, his family – beloved wife Agnes, spirited daughter Madeline and cunning son Peter – are torn apart, both physically and emotionally. Twenty years later, Madeline’s husband is found murdered and Madeline becomes prime suspect, leading the reader on a journey to uncover the truths behind both deaths. But things are not always what they seem, memories can’t always be trusted, and self-preservation can be a powerful motive.
