The Somerfords are the kind of family other people envy: the successful husband and his beautiful wife have a gorgeous house, lots of money and even a new baby to complete their family. Until Ian Somerford's secretary is found lying dead at the foot of an apartment block and rumours of a lethal affair start to fly. Soon, the family's suppressed hatreds and jealousies have torn them apart. Ian's sister Diane seems to be the only one who can't believe he committed a terrible crime, but at every turn, more unsettling family secrets emerge. Can Diane clear her brother's name only by becoming a victim herself? Angelica, Ian's American wife, throws him out of the house as he undergoes police questioning. Several days later her body is found along with those of her children. Only baby Thomas has survived, sleeping peacefully in his cot. Ian's body is found later, a bottle of sleeping tablets in his hand and a photograph of his wife in the other. The evidence is overwhelming - it's an open and shut case. But when Ian's family starts investigations to clear his name during the custody battle for Thomas, unsettling family secrets start to emerge and it's clear that there is more evidence still undiscovered!
