Thomas Pitt of Her Majesty's Special Branch is summoned to a mansion, where the body of a junior diplomat lies huddled in a wheelbarrow.

For twenty years, Celia Scott has watched her husband Arthur hide from the secrets surrounding his sister Eve's death. But the 1967 Detroit riots frighten him even more than his past, and he convinces Celia to pack up their family and return to Bent Road.
