A wife who must keep her affair secret.

A husband who has the power to bring her lover down.

A marriage that could end in murder.

Beth was still reeling from the end of her affair the night she met Albie – a man who knows her ex better than anyone, but has no idea of their history.

He’s perfectly placed to give Beth the revenge she craves – if only she can keep her secret safe.

But how far is she willing to go?

A letter to the UK from Italy: this is what we know about your future

“That miracle, that wonder of the world, which I really do believe the NHS is, that was born on the battlefield, has now become the battlefield.

Actor @michaelsheen says, “the people who are on the front line of this war are our NHS workers.”
