When your Monday morning begins with a dead dog and ends with a dead boss, you know it's going to be one of those days. And breakfast TV reporter Cora Baxter has already had the weekend from hell, where the man she'd planned a fabulous future with unceremoniously dumped her.

Now Cora's much-hated boss has been murdered. The list of suspects isn't exactly short, but as the enquiry continues, the trail leads frighteningly close to home.

Cora is convinced that her friend is innocent, but with seemingly solid evidence, the police investigation team - reluctantly led by Cora's boyfriend, DCI Adam Bradberry - believe the case is closed.
