A full synopsis of the series shares: “When Emma Hedges returns to Dundee to start her new job as a lab technician, she’s encouraged to take part in an online course teaching the principles of forensic science. Given a fictitious murder case, her task is to identify the victim and establish how they died. But having completed the first module, Emma knows exactly who the victim is: her mum!
“Marie Monroe was murdered when Emma was seven, her body discovered on Law Hill and no-one has ever been convicted. But why are Sarah Gordon, professor of chemistry, and Kathy Torrence , professor of forensic anthropology, using her mother’s case for their course?
“Determined to discover what happened to Marie but unable to get answers from her family, Emma turns to Sarah who offers up trusted friend DI McKinven as the natural place for Emma to take her revelations.
“As Emma reconnects with her dad Drew , her childhood friend Skye and her mum Izzy, while falling for the gentle and irresistible Daniel, her sleuthing takes her into dark corners, unpicking more and more secrets, and it becomes clear that she should trust no-one.
“It will be Sarah and Kathy’s exacting minds that reward Emma’s faith in the science that has fuelled her imagination, and who will ultimately bring her mother’s killer to justice.”
