When Fee, Millie and Sabrina meet, while waiting for their children at a local theatre, they soon discover that they have something in common in their unhappy marriages.
As they and their husbands and children deal with separation, our sympathies swing between the women and the men until something much more devastating threatens to unravel everything.
Death, loss and suspicion invade everyone’s lives. The question is, who will die next?
Kitty Thomas, a successful but emotionally brittle journalist, receives a series of unwelcome letters. In the very personal investigation that follows, she is driven to prove her correspondent wrong – because the alternative is too dreadful to contemplate.
In this book and the rest of the series, we experience Kitty’s skill as an investigative jounalist and her developing relationships with her closest friends and family. All have a part to play in the complex weft and warp of her life.
