It’s 1963, and Alison Wilson returns home to find husband Alexander dead. Soon afterwards, a woman unexpectedly arrives at the door, claiming to be Alec’s ‘real wife’. Alison embarks on a mission of discovery to try and find out who her husband really was; but from their wartime romance whilst working for the secret service, to a mysterious period in India – it soon becomes clear that Alec died holding his secrets close to his chest. Alison is left craving the truth as she makes discoveries that threaten to tear her carefully crafted world apart.
‘A ripping adventure full of mystery, romance, danger, and travel to foreign lands.’
‘I was utterly gripped by [Ruth Wilson’s] performance and the revelations about this frankly loathsome man’
‘Anna Symon’s compelling script adroitly structures Alison’s investigation across three hour-long parts, managing to render each additional betrayal even more shocking and painful than the last.’
