It has been a decade since Alan Langford's charred remains were discovered in his burnt-out car.
His wife Donna was found guilty of conspiracy to murder her husband and served ten years in prison. But just before she is released, Donna receives a nasty shock: an anonymous letter containing a photo of her husband.
The man she hates with every fibre of her being - the man she paid to have murdered - seems very much alive and well. How is it possible that her husband is still alive?
Where is he? Who sent the photo, and why?DI Tom Thorne becomes involved in a case where nothing and no one are what they seem.
It will take him much further from his London beat than he has ever been before - and closer to a killer who will do anything to protect his new life.
