Genevieve has finally escaped the stressful and dangerous demands of her work—sales executive by day, pole dancer at the exclusive Barclay by night—and achieved her dream: to get out of London and start a new life aboard a houseboat in Kent.
But on the night of her boat-warming party a body washes up beside the vessel, and Genevieve recognises the victim.
