The tagline of Nicola Cassidy's novel - "Be careful who you let into your home" - says it all. Set in the late 19th Century, the book opens with the discovery of the bodies of twin babies buried in a cottage garden in Dublin. Meanwhile in Drogheda, a prim young woman with seemingly impeccable references takes up the position of nanny to a baby girl, Anna Genevieve Thomas, whose mother died in childbirth. And while she seems to know what she's about, there's something about this nanny that just doesn't wash with the Thomas family's housekeeper, Mrs McHugh.

Back in Dublin, following post-mortem examinations which reveal the babies were poisoned, Dublin Metropolitan Police decide to exhume the body of the infants' father who died unexpectedly some weeks previously.
