The grieving widow. The other woman. Which one is which? When Cameron Swift is shot and killed outside his family home, DC Beth Chamberlain is appointed Family Liaison Officer. Her role is to support the family - and investigate them. Monika, Cameron's partner and mother of two sons, had to be prised off his lifeless body after she discovered him. She has no idea why anyone would target Cameron. Beth can understand Monika's confusion. To everyone in their affluent community, Monika and her family seemed just like any other.

As the case unfolds, Beth discovers that nothing is quite as it appears and everyone, it seems, has secrets. Especially the dead...
