A home invasion in a house which is properly secured. An excellent location, a fabulous house, nice family - when the robbery goes wrong and Ava's daughter is hurt badly Ava's whole world is turned upside down.
Her husband whilst taking out the trash had not re-armed the security device which led to the invasion. Detectives unraveling the case turn up clues which devastate Ava. Her husband is bankrupt, he has swindled her out of all her inheritance, they are going to be left homeless, her daughter is in critical care, her step son who is always zonked out is in a worse place than before and above all her husband refuses to even talk to her whilst in prison.
A vicious cycle of debt, drug deals gone bad, a home invasion that was not supposed to go the way it had and will Ava ever get her life together again. The family is split and even Hannah her elder daughter in college seems to be going away from her for reasons of her own.
Finding out who is responsible in a series of connected events if heart breaking for Ava. Whom to trust in her life is limited as everyone around her has proved to be lying.
This was a twisty tale.
