The secrets of the past have deadly consequences…

As far as the police are concerned the brutal murder of Ann Kennedy is an open and shut case. The knife-wielding attacker is the dead woman's son, Fergal Kennedy. But Tara Ross is not convinced. All her instincts as an investigative journalist tell her that they are wrong. And there is an added complication-- Tara and Fergal are lovers.

Determined to find the real truth Tara sets out on the trail of the killer -- a dangerous chase which leads her from a squalid drug den in Dublin, to an artist's studio in Montmartre in Paris, and an involvement with the mysterious Estonian, Andres Talimann.

A compelling story of murder, betrayal and family secrets that will keep the reader guessing to the very end.
