Hairdresser Lauren Canning from Ross on Wye, Herefordshire, England is back in Ross after a holiday in the Cayman Islands. She returns a million pounds richer after an island businessman’s intended deal with her collapsed due to the murder of his rival. One of her clients at Mirror Images, Cavendish Bishop, offers her the chance to purchase an apartment in his mansion Hope Hall. Ten weeks after she moves in Bishop is found murdered. The same police unit who questioned her in the Caymans turns up to investigate. They are amazed to find her living in such luxury. They already think she tricked them over their previous investigation. But things hot up when Bishop’s Will is read.
