After fleeing London and her failed marriage, the Channel Island of Guernsey had felt like an escape to paradise for vet Anna Weston. With a new post as junior partner in a St Peter Port veterinary practice, and a new love in Guernseyman, Detective Inspector Tim Le Page, Anna has never felt happier or more secure. Until she finds herself on the receiving end of a series of bizarre and terrifying threats. Anna cannot bear to believe that any of her new friends or colleagues may be responsible, and it is almost a relief when suspicion falls on her estranged husband, who has abandoned his home and business and left no forwarding address. But who sent Anna's husband an anonymous package of photographs showing Anna and Tim together? And why would they want to cause trouble for Anna? She and Tim are set to face further outrage before the final atrocity -- the impact of which will spread throughout the community.
