The show is based off of Louise Candlish’s book of the same name, which was a Sunday Times bestseller and won Book of the Year – Crime and Thriller at the 2019 British Book Awards.

The story follows Fi Lawson who returns home to see strangers moving into her home and her family possessions gone despite not knowing that her house was up for sale.

She then cannot locate her estranged husband who she desperately tries to find answers from. The drama series will then switch between timelines to show the couple’s life leading up to the present day.

The book’s synopsis reads: “She and her husband Bram have owned their home on Trinity Avenue for years and have no intention of selling. How can this other family possibly think the house is theirs? And why has Bram disappeared when she needs him most?”

“Bram has made a catastrophic mistake and now he is paying. Unable to see his wife, his children or his home, he has nothing left but to settle scores.

"As the nightmare takes grip, both Bram and Fi try to make sense of the events that led to a devastating crime.”
