It was some time since Benet had seen her psychologically disturbed mother. So when Mopsa arrived at the airport looking drab and colourless in a dowdy grey suit, Benet tried not to hate her.
But then the tragic death of a child begins a chain of deception, kidnap and murder in which three women are pushed to their psychological limit.
