The sudden loss of her husband forces Ellen Richmond to cope with matters she has never had to face. Harry went sailing, his yacht unaccountably sank, and he is missing and presumed dead. Could it have been suicide? She has to keep such harmful speculation from the children, Katie and Josh. She has to ward off Harry's bossy and disapproving sister and his former partner, who fancies himself irresistible. But, above all, she has to deflect the interest of a stranger who introduces himself at the funeral and claims to have known her husband. Ellen fears his help in finding the truth will threaten all that she holds dear. She's learning Harry's secrets, but only one person knows what happened to Harry. Francesca Annis stars in the BBC dramatic adaptation of Deceit.
