Lee Arnold and Mumtaz Hakim run a detective agency in London's East End. But their latest case could have devastating consequences.
A new client, Nasreen, has sought Hakim's help. Recently moved to a new house, and with a baby on the way, this should be an exciting time - but Nasreen has made friends in the community that she cannot tell her husband, Abdullah, about. And when a murder takes place close to their home, Nasreen suspects that Abdullah also has something to hide.
This case is a challenge for the agency, but provides a timely warning to Mumtaz - debts spiralling, her life is in danger of spinning out of control.
Both women are on a path towards destruction, as the consequences of ignoring their instincts become ever more dangerous...
