This perfect family – the successful business manager, the happy housewife, the straight-A student, gone in a heartbeat...

Dig deeper, though, and things look different. A failed academic. A lonely wife. A teenager with dark secrets. Dig deeper and you see what’s missing from that perfect picture of a perfect family.

A family with a secret.
A past about to catch up with them.

At thirty, Hanna has finally decided she’s better off without her family. They hold her responsible for the incident that ruined their lives fourteen years ago and they’ve barely spoken since.

But then, whilst browsing a true crime website, she sees her family home listed as the site of a brutal murder. Number of victims: three. Date of crime: today. When the police investigate, they find no bodies, but the house is abandoned. Hanna’s family have disappeared.

To find them, Hanna will have to confront what happened all those years ago.

And the person determined to make her pay for it . . .
