Meet Meet The characters

Ellie Murray

Ellie, Finn’s wife, was pregnant with their first child when she died in a car accident. On an icy morning, her car skidded off the road and crashed into a tree, tragically killing her and her unborn baby.

Ellie had a childhood that was far from easy. With her parents both dead – killed in a car accident that eerily mirrored her own death – Ellie grew up in foster care. In the weeks leading up to her death, Ellie was growing increasingly frantic, barely acting like herself. Was she experiencing early pregnancy nerves, or was she hiding something from Finn?

Finlay Murray

Finn works as a doctor in the A and E department of a busy London hospital. His wife, Ellie, who he was hopelessly in love with, was killed in a road traffic accident while pregnant with their unborn child. His overwhelming grief at Ellie’s loss and the intolerable reality of life alone has led Finn to a dark place, and a conflicting text message about his wife’s accident plunges him even deeper into a world where sickening lies and bitter betrayal wage war.

Finn sets out to find the truth about Ellie’s death in the hope that he can finally move on – but the truth quickly gets further and further out of reach.
