A driver drags her body to the side of the road.
A shadowy figure hides in the trees, watching.

Ellie’s new neighbour, former Detective Chief Inspector Tom Douglas has moved to the village for some peace and quiet, but as he is drawn into the web of deceit his every instinct tells him that what happened that night was more than a tragic accident.
