When Brigid Foster's elderly mother Frummie comes to stay with her at her idyllic Devonian hideaway - Foxhole - Brigid feels it's a hideaway no longer. There has always been tension between the two women, caused by Brigid's opinion that Frummie has always favoured her sister Jemima over her. But when two murders occur nearby, both of women on their own, Brigid and Frummie are drawn together; especially when a visitor appears who seems to be hiding a terrible secret...
