When her husband, Simon - a flamboyant conductor - kills himself, Alex is mortified that she failed to see it coming. Confused, guilt-ridden and grieving, she escapes to Hillen Hall, an old house by the coast in Devon, abandoning her classical singing career and distancing herself from everyone but her sister Erica.
Hillen Hall, inherited by Simon from his mother and once a fine manor house, is now creaking and unloved. When Theo Hellyon, Simon's cousin, turns up at her door, offering to help with its renovation, Alex is perplexed and intrigued, previously unaware that Simon even had a cousin. And Theo is charming and attentive and reminds her strikingly of Simon so, despite Erica's warnings, it is impossible for Alex not to want him in her life.
But the old Hall has a tortured history which Alex cannot even begin to suspect and Theo is not remotely what he seems. So how long will it be before Alex realises she is making a fatal mistake?
