A gripping storyteller . (Peter James). Former detective Lacey Flint quit the force for a safer, quieter life. Or that's what she thought. Now living alone on her houseboat, she is trying to get over the man she loves, undercover detective Mark Joesbury. But Mark is missing in action and impossible to forget. And danger won't leave Lacey alone. When she finds a body floating in the river near her home, wrapped in burial cloths, she can't resist asking questions. Who is this woman, and why was she hidden in the fast-flowing depths[unk] And who has been delivering unwanted gifts to Lacey? Someone is watching Lacey Flint closely. Someone who knows exactly what makes her tick...
Having given up her job as a detective to join the river police for a quieter life, Lacey Flint, in this her fourth adventure finds far more than she expected on going for a morning swim. The body wrapped in white burial cloth proves to be only the start of a thrilling escapade that is written with Sharon Bolton’s customary dark edge. There are lots of twists to the plot and a denouement worthy of Agatha Christie.
