Review by

Another excellent DI Peter Shaw story, this time most of the action centred in and around Wells-Next-The-Sea and Creake in North Norfolk. Shaw is leading a cold case review of an old murder near Wells when some unexplained, suspicious deaths in Creake appear linked in some way. What seemed a straightforward case review using new DNA analysis suddenly appears to be leading to dead ends. Lots of plot twists leave the reader guessing until the end. Particularly enjoyable for me as many of the locations were authentic, apart from the murder spot, and familiar from my childhood.
