In Liz Nugent’s fourth psychological thriller we meet the dysfunctional Drumm family who have found themselves in a dreadful domestic situation. A narcissistic mother and her three adult sons demonstrate how a seemingly inconsequential decision can impact the lives of others - ending in murder. The cruelties the Drumm siblings inflict upon each other throughout their adolescent and adult lives spins a tale so dark and sinister it will keep you guessing right up until the final page.

Three brothers. One in a coffin. Which brother put him there? And why?
Three brothers are at the funeral. One lies in the coffin.
Will, Brian and Luke grow up competing for their mother's love, but she is unable and unwilling to love all of them.
As adults, the competition continues. One brother always has what another one wants - status, money, success, a woman, the love of a child, his mother's attention.
But maybe there's a chance to even things up. Perhaps with one brother gone there would be more to go around.
Which will it be?
