Locked down in a pandemic, living in a rural backwater in the Highlands of Scotland, three neighbours have discovered a secret fortune which could change their lives. They would never have chosen to share this secret – or the fortune – with each other, but circumstances conspire to bring them together. Now they must decide what to do. Can they trust each other? Are they really what they seem?
A young police detective is hunting for a case of missing cash, last traced to the wilds of Strathavie. It’s not a safe hoard: in fact, it belongs to a drug cartel. Will he find the money before someone gets hurt? Or are two local deaths already a consequence of the missing cash?

How far would you go if no one was looking?
