A valuable collection of cricket memorabilia leads Sophie Rivers into a terrifying mix of intimidation, violence and murder.
Sophie Rivers is offered a temporary job at Warwickshire Cricket Club, archiving a collection of memorabilia, and jumps at the chance to spend more time with her new husband, England cricketer Mike Lowden. But once news gets out that the bequest contains some priceless objects, Sophie and her colleagues become the victims of a terrifying campaign of intimidation and violence. And when some of the most valuable items go missing, along with the museum's curator, things start to look very sinister indeed.
Meanwhile, Mike has started to behave increasingly oddly, and Sophie is convinced he is hiding something. Surely he isn't having an affair or involved in the latest cricket scandal? With her new job becoming increasingly hazardous, Sophie determines to uncover the truth at any cost.
