When Audrey Kepler inherits an abandoned homestead in rural Queensland, she jumps at the chance to escape her loveless existence in the city and make a fresh start.
In a dusty back room of the old house, she discovers the crumbling photo of a handsome World War Two medic – Samuel Riordan, the homestead’s former occupant – and soon finds herself becoming obsessed with him.
But as Audrey digs deeper into Samuel’s story, she discovers he was accused of bashing to death a young woman on a young woman on his return from the war in 1946. When she learns about other unexplained deaths in recent years– she begins to suspect that the killer is still very much alive.
