At first it looks like an open-and-shut case, but then doubt is cast on the investigation's findings - and the integrity of thepolice. Cormac is thrown back into the cold case that has haunted him his entire career - what links the two deaths, two decades apart? As he navigates his way through police politics and the ghosts of the past, Detective Reilly uncovers shocking secrets and finds himself questioning who among his colleagues he can trust.What really did happen in that house where he first met Maude and Jack?
