An Charts bestseller In a small town full of secrets everyone’s a suspect When a body is discovered bled dry on a beach the sleepy seaside town of Weston super Mare wakes up to a nightmare For Detective Inspector Louise Blackwell recently transferred to the town she last saw as a child it’s her first case on the jobThe victim Veronica Lloyd an elderly volunteer. DI Louise Blackwell has recently transferred to the English seaside town of Weston super Mare disgraced after shooting an unarmed man in a police raid eve though the swears that her partner told her he was armed Her first murder case with her new team is that of an elderly women found on the beach who bled to death from wounds to her wrist When an elderly priest is found a few days later dead from similar wounds Louise must find the connection between the cases before any deaths occurTold from Louise s viewpoint as well that of the killer this was a fairly enjoyable read Although the reader knows who the killer is from the start it s up to Louise and her team to work out his bizarre motive and what he might to do next The plot is driven by their investigations as a story of revenge starts to emerge and a suspenseful climax as they work out the killer s ultimate goal Although the characters are uite well depicted I didn t feel any connection with them especially with Louise who is still carrying a grudge against her ex partner for not telling the truth view spoilerI also felt it was unnecessary for the head of major crimes to be putting pressure on Louise to find the killer within a few days of the murder or be taken off the case That felt totally unrealistic when there were no obvious suspects The killer s motive also didn t feel realistic based on an even he saw 30y before hide spoiler
