Four people are found shot dead at the luxury home of the Stahlbergs, one of Oslo's wealthiest dynasties and notorious for highly publicised infighting. Three of the dead are members of the family and the fourth victim is a seeming nobody. With so many years of bad blood, it's hard to narrow down a shortlist of suspects. Hanne Wilhelmsen is drafted in to untangle the family's complex, bitter history and find the killer. Working with her longtime police partner Billy T., the pair unearth numerous motives for the murders; each surviving member of the Stahlberg family had good reason to want the victims dead. But as Hanne digs deeper she comes to believe there is a bigger secret concealed by the lies. As she draws closer to the truth, Hanne will once again risk everything for justice. The seventh instalment in the sensationally gripping Hanne Wilhelmsen series.
