“British-born Toronto actress Shara Summers turns amateur sleuth when her sister Astrid is stricken with a mysterious illness. Summoned back to England to be with her family during a time of crisis, Shara discovers that doctors are at a loss as to what is causing Astrid’s debilitating illness.
Then an elderly relative, Auntie Ruth, is found dead at the bottom of the stairs. The death is deemed to be an accident. Only Shara suspects that it wasn’t. As Shara takes it upon herself to investigate, she unearths shocking family secrets and the chilling realisation that Astrid’s illness is also part of a murder plot connected to the death of the old lady. Shara’s investigations have far-reaching and tragic consequences that affect not only her own future, but also Astrid’s.”
