Claire confronts Bill over his argument with Adam on the wedding video and is told that her brother was unfaithful, which she disbelieves. She is however intrigued to find that Adam made five phone ...
Childhood sweethearts Adam Elliot and Grace Douglas, who have returned home from their honeymoon and are found brutally murdered. Their families and neighbors in the remote Scottish Highland village of Braeston are devastated, but things take an even darker turn when a badly injured man arrives at their doorstep after his car comes off the road - a man who seems to be the killer.
The characters are complex and nuanced as are the performances for most. Others like the brother Rob are marred in just being a plot device rather than fully formed person. The parents get the best stuff and while there's lots of nail biting and the furious smoking of a cigarette- and why wouldn't there be- they each unravel, piece by piece, righteousness, judgement, martyrdom, cowardice, greed and of course, hypocrisy. All of it. It's Greek tragedy.
