Elizabeth Hampton has not spoken to her mother in weeks when she gets the phone call. Her mother has been found dead under suspicious circumstances.
But who would want to kill a kind old woman who stayed at home to care for her son Ronnie's special needs? And why did her mother recently change her Will?
The police tell Elizabeth that this is not only a murder investigation - her brother Ronnie is the prime suspect.
Desperate to prove her brother's innocence, Elizabeth begins to unravel dark family secrets, double lives and the shocking truth behind her own identity.
