Would you risk everything to protect your family?
Carla Andrews and Lorraine West are work colleagues and best friends. They socialise together, they work in the same bookmakers and they support each other as only best friends can. Then they are murdered together.
When DI Tom Fowler is handed the case, he discovers a journal that Carla has left and must unpick the secrets Lorraine has kept hidden. Soon Carla’s and Lorraine’s husbands become the main suspects. It’s usually the spouse who is responsible, isn’t it?
The investigation progresses until Isaac West, Lorraine’s 16-year-old son, disappears. Will the truth ever emerge? Will Isaac ever be found? And is knowing the truth always worth the sacrifice?
