May 2016 eBook of the Month.
This is the first in a new series, and introduces DS Gillian Marsh as she focusses on a missing person enquiry. The novel begins with 40 year old Nicola jet-setting off to the Maldives, clever, shy and retiring, she finds herself out of her depth, until she meets the man of her dreams. A feeling of menace pervades this idyllic spot with the writing highlighting a sense of forboding. Back in the UK, Nicola is reported missing by her neighbours when she fails to return from her holiday. Enter DS Gillian Marsh, a no nonsense detective with attitude, she takes the report by the scruff of its neck and flies out to the Maldives to make enquiries. I suggest any disbelief at this point is suspended, just enjoy the trip as DS Marsh bulldozes her way through the investigation. ‘Swimming With Sharks’ is an easy to read, globetrotting crime drama.
Swimming with Sharks is the scintillating new novel by acclaimed author Anna Legat, and the first in the DI Gillian Marsh series. When fortysomething Nicola Eagles goes on the holiday of a lifetime to the Maldives, she never dreams she'll fall in love - she's too shy, too set in her ways. But then she meets someone who changes her life for ever...Just when things seem to be going right for Nicola, though, she disappears without a trace. Was it a voluntary disappearance, or was she abducted - or murdered? When her absence is noted back in the UK, DI Gillian Marsh is sent to investigate. Gillian is a good detective but her life is dysfunctional to say the least - and as she delves deeper into the case, she realises that she may be out of her depth professionally too. For Nicola's disappearance is just the start...
