Emily Noble's Disgrace
A house full of stuff left behind by a dead woman, abandoned at the last . .
When an old woman dies in a derelict boarding house in the seaside suburb of Portobello, Essie Pound (trauma cleaner) believes this will be just another routine job. But a gruesome discovery amidst the hoards of discarded possessions leads her path to cross with that of a young policewoman, Emily Noble, who has her own reasons to solve the case.
As the two women embark on a journey into the heart of a forgotten family, the investigation prompts fragmented memories of their own traumatic histories - something Emily has spent a lifetime attempting to bury, and Essie a lifetime trying to lay bare.
