The darkest evening hides the deadliest secrets.

As she drives back to her home in the hills, Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope takes a wrong turn, leading her to a car that has skidded off the road. She stops to help, but there is no driver to be seen. Then she hears a cry: a toddler is strapped in the backseat.

Vera takes the child and, driving on, arrives at the place she knows well. Brockburn is a large, grand house in the wild northern countryside, now a little shabby and run-down. It’s also where her father, Hector, grew up. Inside, there’s a party in full swing. Outside, unbeknownst, a woman lies dead.

As a blizzard closes in, Brockburn begins to give up its secrets, and as Vera digs deeper into her investigation, she also begins to uncover her family’s complicated past.
