As they start digging, Nell is horrified to discover that the grandparents who raised her left out vital information regarding her parents. Her father, Alan Matthews, was suspected of murdering his wife Sally. Alan had protested his innocence, but then disappeared, leaving Nell with her grandmother. The murder of Sally Matthews casts a very long shadow. Would Nell recognize her father if she saw him? Is he really a killer, or the victim of a set up?
