Review from

The Somerfords are the kind of family other people envy: the successful husband and his beautiful wife have a gorgeous house, lots of money and even a new baby to complete their family. Until Ian Somerford's secretary is found lying dead at the foot of an apartment block and rumours of a lethal affair start to fly. Soon, the family's suppressed hatreds and jealousies have torn them apart.

Ian's sister Diane seems to be the only one who can't believe he committed a terrible crime, but at every turn, more unsettling family secrets emerge. Can Diane clear her brother's name only by becoming a victim herself? Angelica, Ian's American wife, throws him out of the house as he undergoes police questioning. Several days later her body is found along with those of her children.

Only baby Thomas has survived, sleeping peacefully in his cot. Ian's body is found later, a bottle of sleeping tablets in his hand and a photograph of his wife in the other. The evidence is overwhelming - it's an open and shut case.

But when Ian's family starts investigations to clear his name during the custody battle for Thomas, unsettling family secrets start to emerge and it's clear that there is more evidence still undiscovered...

Will probably be taken on my holidays in this space :o)

Edited 21st July 2008 for Review
Diane's brother, Ian, is accused of the murder of his secretary Nicki.....& Diane has a fling with Lee, the murder victim's husband - not a good move!
Diane has doubts over the guilt of Ian but her relationship with Lee complicates things. Involving herself puts her life in danger &, when a further tragedy strikes, Diane & her mother are the only ones who believe Ian is innocent.

Quite a good read. I did guess the identity of the murderer but nothing was proved until the end so it kept me wondering! I can't say I found Diane a particulary likeable character. She seemed to be a bit too obssessed with her brother, & he just comes & goes into their home as he pleases-
I can't imagine any husband putting up with so much intrusion!
