Faith Howells has a perfect life... or does she?
Wife, mother of three young children and partner in a small family-owned law firm, she has sacrificed the prospect of a high-flying career for a happy-ever-after existence in a quiet town on the beautiful coast of west Wales.
One Wednesday morning Faith’s life is turned upside down when her loyal husband, Evan, leaves for work and never arrives. Every certainty to which she has ever clung is thrown into doubt as she is forced to the realisation that he has gone. She then begins to discover that he took many untold secrets with him.
Juggling children while holding together an embattled law firm, Faith’s search for Evan takes her into ever darker realms as she confronts the fact that there is something that can be called truly evil and accepts the possibility that it has claimed the man she loves.
Meanwhile, increasingly suspicious local police suspect foul play and treat Faith as the prime suspect. Drawing on resources she never knew she possessed, Faith transforms from domesticated mother to lioness in her pursuit of the truth – the only thing that can save her family from heartbreak and ruin.
