At discreet Deepdene, the guests are ready to test for themselves the makeover mansion's claim that every woman can - with expensive encouragement - realise her full beauty.

Outside the rain begins to fall. Inside, beneath the smooth surface of the Deepdene routines, undercurrents stir and gather strength. Soon it is clear to Verity Birdwood that all is not what it seems. But even sharp, resourceful Birdie does not suspect that within Deepdene's silk-lined walls is an enemy with murder in mind.
