A single shot is fired. Was it intended to kill?
September 1922 – Iris Woodmore returns to Walden after a scandalous trip abroad – and not everyone is pleased to see her.
Her efforts to mend relations are hindered by her growing attraction to the unpredictable Reverend Archie Powell. Only her friend, wealthy businesswoman Constance Timpson, welcomes her back.
Constance has made deadly enemies and needs Iris to defend her from a hostile press. When a single shot is fired at Constance, no one is sure if the sniper intended to scare or kill – but when two of her factory workers go missing, it’s clear the threat is real.
Iris turns amateur sleuth to investigate the mystery – and realises the sniper isn’t the only hidden enemy preying on women.
