The Nightingales were always a very happy couple. If a husband and wife never discuss anything but the weather and are waited on hand and foot, what is there to quarrel about?

The case seemed straightforward enough, but Wexford soon discovered that beneath the placid exterior of the Nightingales’ lives, there were undercurrents and secrets no one had ever suspected.
