When their grandmother dies, Grace and Andrew Easton inherit her London home, Dinmont House. Rather than sell it, the adult siblings move in together. The arrangement is ideal for the affectionate pair until the day Andrew brings home a new boyfriend. A devilishly handsome novelist, James Derain's strident comments about Grace's doctoral thesis soon puncture the house's idyllic atmosphere. When he and Andrew witness their friend's murder outside a London nightclub, James begins to unravel, and what happens next will change the lives of everyone in the house.
