Ricky Ryan has been in a near-fatal car crash. He has spent the last three months in hospital slowly recovering from his injuries. The thing is with Ricky, that this isn’t the first car accident he’s been in where he has almost lost his life. This has happened four times before. It seems he has date with death and somehow keeps cheating it, literally by the skin of his teeth.
Ricky’s life has changed this time around though. When his wife, Maggie, comes in to visit him in hospital she announces, whilst she thinks he’s unconscious, that she’s been having an affair with his brother, David. She also tells Ricky that she’s leaving and planning a new life with his brother.
Once Ricky recovers he returns to his house, most of the contents have gone; Maggie has gone. Ricky spends a night alone in his empty house but the following morning he discovers Maggie’s body in a freezer in the garage. She has been murdered.
Ricky complies with all the police requests and answers all their questions. He does however fail to mention one thing; Maggie had been having an affair with his brother. Ricky decides to take matters into his own hands and confronts his brother. Unbeknown to Ricky however he is being followed by the determined and unorthodox detective, Tatler. Tatler has a personal interest in the case since he used to date Maggie’s sister, the dominatrix, Bethan. All parties seem so wrapped up in their own problems and identities that none of them have the good sense that the killer will strike again. One by one Ricky’s family are murdered, leaving Ricky to hide away in strange little hotels, praying that Tatler will get to the killer before the killer gets to Ricky.
