John Rawlings' life is idyllic; he owns a successful Apothecary business, is head-over-heels in love with his wife Emilia, and is completely besotted with his three-year-old daughter Rose.

With another baby on the way the London-based family have never been happier.

As Christmas approaches, spirits are high all around and the festive season is in full swing.

When Emilia is approached by an old school friend to take part in a performance to the royal court in Gunnersbury House, her sense of adventure takes over and she convinces John to allow her to go.

A few days later, John undertakes the journey to join his wife and witness her time in the spotlight. But little does he know his perfect life is on the brink of destruction.

A murderer strikes at the royal celebration and John is suddenly found at the scene of utmost brutality with the weapon in his hand and blood running off him.

With John immediately seized as the guilty party, the true killer is left free to attack again.

Only John knows that the real criminal still roams free, and it is up to him to uncover the deception.

But in the meantime, Gunnersbury House lies in grave danger...
