Cambridge, England. A letter is addressed to a woman who may not exist. It has to be opened and read to find its intended recipient. This breach of privacy leads to obsession, and becomes the key to identifying a body found floating in the fens. Detective Inspector Chloe Frohmann investigates a hallowed university, a troubled young woman, and Deeping House, a modest country manor where three families, two nannies and one young man were snowed in one Christmas, and where someone unearthed a shattering secret-with deadly consequences. Chloe thinks she knows the truth, but she has to betray her partner to prove it. Long buried crimes emerge as Chloe unravels a mesmerizing web of deception, vengeance, and murder.
