In the summer of 1952, two lonely people arrive in the pretty seaside hamlet of West Bay. Strangers coming from very different backgrounds, they are there for the same reasons: to find peace of mind and the chance to start a new life.

A quiet, lonely man, Tom Troy has abandoned all his possessions and walked away from a highly paid job. A year ago, he had a wife and two beautiful children, when suddenly his world was turned upside-down. The car he was driving with his family was deliberately run off the seaside road high above the cliffs. He was the only survivor. The driver – who Tom is sure intended to kill them all – has never been found.

Now, a year later, he needs to be alone to deal with the pain and contemplate his future.

Kitty Morris has tried to cling on to her zest for life and her sense of humour through times of pain and loneliness. Recovering from her divorce, she seeks comfort in the arms of other men and parties. But a shocking, revealing row with her mother is the final straw, and consequently when she inherits a rundown house in West Bay, she flees to Dorset.

In that delightful place, for both Tom and Kitty, it seems there is hope of rebuilding their lives. Yet even now, someone means to wreck both Tom and Kitty's search for happiness. People are jealous. And a brutal killer is still on the loose…

Suddenly West Bay is not the peaceful place it was…
