A terminally-ill man is found dead, with his throat cut ear-to-ear. Alice Rice is brought in to investigate and finds herself possibly on the tail of a serial killer. She also has reason to believe her partner is lying to her. What secret is he hiding?  This atmospheric thriller builds on the success of the first three Alice Rice mysteries, and is a passionate tale of deception, betrayal and the value of life and love.

As Heather Brodie kisses her lover goodnight, her disabled husband lies dead, his throat cut from ear to ear. Who wanted Gavin Brodie dead? Many people, including Gavin Brodie.
