The story is set in London in the late 1980’s. Henry Lamb is living on his Father’s fortune that bought him the house in Cheyne Walk, Chelsea. It is also home to his wife, and socialite, Martina, and their two children. Henry is 11 and his sister 9. They both attend an expensive school in Knightsbridge.

Life for the Lambs will never be the same again!
Five years later, in the Cheyne Walk house, three bodies, dead for several days, are found by police, who suspect a suicide pact.
