Businessman Hugh Wellesley reads a newspaper report; a corpse found, stabbed and bound, in the River Dart in Devon, has been identified. It is his lover, Sylvie, the mistress his wife doesn't know about. Hugh becomes a suspect, but he lies, insisting that their relationship was innocent. And, to protect him, his wife and brother tell other lies. But the evidence against him continues to mount. Can Hugh disentangle himself from this web of deceit so that Sylvie's actual murderer can be brought to justice?

Though they are deeply in love, a series of misunderstandings has left Hugh and Ginny's marriage in bad shape. Hugh, caught up in a desperate takeover battle for his family business, has postponed making the effort needed to patch up the relationship. Ginny is sure the fault is hers; she would do anything to regain Hugh's love.
He is driving to an urgent business meeting, listening to the news, when he learns that a corpse, found bound and stabbed, floating in the River Dart in Devon, has been identified. It is his one-time girlfriend and recent mistress, Sylvie. Anxious to conceal this relationship from his fragile wife, fearful it would put an end to their shaky marriage, Hugh lies to the police.
Ginny, too, lies in an attempt to protect Hugh and she comes under suspicion. His brother and sister-in-law have tried to provide him with an alibi as well. Somewhere, a murderer is watching, laughing. There is no way the police will believe the truth now. Can Hugh and Ginny ever disentangle themselves from the web of deceit they have spun so that justice may be done?
