Shad couldn’t be guilty of murder . . . could he?
Rosie Holland, agony aunt for the Skipley Chronicle, speeds to the aid of a woman supposedly held at knifepoint – only to discover the whole thing is a hoax organised by the makers of a TV programme.
Merely annoyed at first, Rosie becomes worried when her gardener, Shad, is discovered unconscious and bleeding near the dead body of one of the programme’s researchers. Rosie finds it impossible to believe that Shad could have been involved and she vows to discover the truth. But as she delves deeper into the events surrounding the night of the murder, she realises that in this bizarre set-up of twisted humour and warped ambition, nothing is as it seems.
