On her early morning walk, Frances Shaw comes upon the naked body of a young woman carefully laid out in the doorway of the hospital morgue in Dun Laoghaire. Frances recognises the corpse but does not know - yet - of the parallel murders: one committed forty years ago in New York another in Dun Laoghaire, fifty years ago. Both victims were also young women. Both were drowned, stripped naked and left in the doorway of morgues. As she gradually gathers more information, Frances cannot accept the police theory of copy-cat murders, and embarks on her own investigation. But in doing so, she risks revealing long-buried secrets in her own life.
