In a Durham hotel at dawn, celebrated preacher Tristan Snow is murdered as he prays. None of the other guests - not even his daughter, his wife, or her sister - saw or heard anything. But then again, they each had a motive for murder.
Detective Inspector Erica Martin is confronted by secrets and lies, lost in a case where nothing is what it seems. With no answers, DI Martin is consumed by questions: is anyone in this family innocent? When the victim might have been a monster, is there such a thing as justice? And does anyone deserve to die?
