THE PERFECT COUPLE. THE PERFECT HOUSE. THE PERFECT CRIME.
Londoners Jack and Syd moved into the house a year ago. It seemed like their dream home: tons of space, the perfect location, and a friendly owner who wanted a young couple to have it.

Because someone has just been murdered. Right outside their back door.
And now the police are watching them...
