Written by Scott Cherry.

When 38-year-old Melanie Brant is murdered on the way to her wedding, Family Liaison Officer, DC Jackie Hartwell, soon finds herself suspecting the bride-to-be's parents.

Why do they insist they knew nothing of their daughter's marriage even though she was still living at home? Who's the mysterious Robbie that she'd intended to marry? And why is her father so desperate to avoid all questioning?

Jackie's soon convinced that Melanie was murdered by her father and sets out to prove it - a task made more difficult by the increasingly erratic behaviour of her senior officer, DI Sanders, as his personal life implodes.
