Set in the UK in the 1960s, 23-yearold Katy Speed is daz­zled by Glo­ria, a glam­orous di­vorcee who lives in the house across the street. But on most Satur­days, Katy no­tices a mysterious woman in a black car ar­rive at Glo­ria’s house, bring­ing other women with her, and chil­dren, while Glo­ria is at work at her dress shop. One night Glo­ria’s house burns down and two bod­ies are found. Katy’s fa­ther is ar­rested and he’s charged with mur­der: could he be guilty or are the un­ex­plained strangers in­volved? A gripping story about the pur­suit of truth.
