In a desperate attempt to recover from the loss of her husband and baby son, Rose McQuinn has returned home to Edinburgh from the American Wild West. It seems that everything has moved on in her absence, including her beloved stepbrother who has found favour at court and moved to London. But Rose has little time to ponder her loneliness as she steps into the shoes of her father, the legendary Detective Inspector Faro, by agreeing to investigate the strange behaviour of Matthew Bolton, husband to Rose’s childhood friend, Alice. Alice is convinced that Matthew is having an affair but Rose suspects something much more sinister – the brutal and still unsolved murder of a servant girl.
