The quiet, predictable English town of Carmell hides a world of shifting identities and deadly secrets, centring on two highly respected members of the community...

In 1929, a decadent artist known only as Rex disappeared when his caravan was destroyed by fire.

And now Rex's fiery death seems to be reverberating into the present day, as Tamara Hoyland discovers after infiltrating a new, rapidly growling moralistic movement called 'Watchwomen'. But what is the connection between Rex and Watchwomen? And are the individual watchwomen as innocent as they seem?

Hoyland follows a serpentine trail through an investigation that proves her as subtle and ruthless as her quarry...
