When Elizabeth Price engages private detective Roland 'Orlando' Gibbons to find out the truth about her husband's suspected affair, she unwittingly sets off a chain of correspondence that reunites four formerly close-knit couples.
They all live just a few suburban streets away from each other; they are all still married; so how - and why - did they become so estranged?
