Everything from betrayal and deadly desires is captured in the thriller adapted by screenwriter Danny Brocklehurst from Harlan Coben’s 2016 novel.

Maya Stern (Michelle Keegan) is shell-shocked by the murder of her husband Joe (Richard Armitage) and Detective Sergeant Sami Kierce (Adeel Akhtar) leads the investigation into his killing.

Joe’s protective mother Judith (Joanna Lumley) becomes an ally during this dark period.

To keep an eye on her young daughter in her hour of grief, Maya secretly installs a nanny-cam in the family home and she is stunned to see recorded images of her husband, who she thought was dead.

Meanwhile, Maya’s niece and nephew Abby and Daniel embark on a separate quest for answers about their mother’s murder, several months earlier.
