How far would you go to protect your family?


Danielle Roberts has the perfect life. An adoption worker, beloved girlfriend and doting mother, she is a cherished pillar of the community, and nobody is closer to her than the Pollitt family who live two doors down.

So when Danielle’s body is discovered on a park bench it sets off a chain reaction of intrigue and suspicion: who in this small town would want her dead, and why? There are questions that nobody can answer, and everyone is a suspect.

The Pollitts thought they would always be there for each other, but they are all hiding secrets. And when they begin to suspect each other of the unimaginable, they discover that you can never truly know someone. Not even your own family . . .
