After a devastating house fire, a blame game starts to tear a family apart…
When Alex Ross receives a phone call telling him that his house is on fire, he immediately drives home from work at full pelt.
Noticeably distressed that his wife, Heather, may have been caught inside, his fears are apparently allayed when she soon joins him at the scene and explains that she had been visiting a friend.
Police quickly determine the fire was no accident and the ensuing investigation begins to focus on the couple themselves.
Detective Inspector Black is determined to find out the truth and if that means revealing family secrets, financial woes and infidelities, then so be it.
Was Alex Ross trying to top off his wife? Was it a local arsonist known to the police? Was it Heather herself?
As the suspicion mounts and tensions become ever more fraught, the family’s stories intersect and forge towards a jaw-droppingly dramatic conclusion.
