Eunice struggles to fit in. When she joins a wealthy family as their housekeeper the very reason for her awkwardness, long hidden, leads to a terrible tale of murder in cold blood - on Valentine’s Day. Ruth Rendell’s brilliant plot unravels a lifetime of deceit which, when revealed, brings a shocking  revelation almost as grizzly as murder itself.

The star cast includes Sophie Ward whose credits  include the film Young Sherlock Holmes and Dr Helen Trent in ITV drama Heartbeat; Deborah Grant who has starred in Not Going Out and Bergerac; movie icon Shirley Anne Field who starred in the landmark films The Entertainer opposite Laurence Olivier, and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning with Albert Finney; Antony Costa who shot to fame in chart topping boy band Blue; The Bill’s Rosie Thomson and Ben Nealon whose TV credits include ITV’s award-winning drama Soldier Soldier.

Duration: 2 hours 10mins with interval
