How many of us have a guilty secret?
Maybe there’s something in your past you’d rather no-one else knew but how bad would it have to be for you to commit murder to keep it quiet?
A little old man has been found dead in his home. It’s sad, but these things happen all the time. DS Dave Slater is asked to investigate but he can see nothing suspicious to report. But then the old man’s house is ransacked.
Of course, it could be an opportunist burglar, but Slater gets the feeling someone was looking for something specific, and now he thinks maybe he was wrong about the old man’s death. But what did the old man have in his possession that would cost his life?
And then there’s Florence, an elusive, ghost-like, figure sometimes seen around town in the early hours. Who she really is, and where she comes from, no-one really knows. Slater & Norman feel she’s involved in some way, and the answer must lie in the past. But how far back must they go to find it?
