The first Lloyd and Hill novel
The news rocked the town. A woman's body found in a boathouse. And the woman's last known companion Missing Presumed Fled. To the people of Stansfield it's an open and shut case.
But Detective Inspector Lloyd - teamed up once more with Sergeant Judy Hill - isn't so quick to jump to conclusions. To begin with he's certain of only two things. First, that nothing can stop the reawakening of his tender feelings towards his colleague.
And second: in a murder enquiry you don't rule out . . .
'An impressive first novel: the plot is tidily constructed, and the author handles a multiple point-of-view narration with considerable ease and aplomb.' - T J Binyon, Times Literary Supplement
