From the bestselling author of The Inspector Lloyd and Sergeant Hill Series...

No one was more stunned than Annie Maddox when they found the body of Gerald Culver MP. Because Annie, the manager of the Wellington Hotel, Amblesea, was Culver’s mistress.

Enter Harry Lambert, ex-policeman-turned-reluctant-private-eye, who's hired by Culver's wife to find her husband's killer.

Annie's world is now filled with menace, because somewhere out there, along the edge of a wintry sea, a killer stalks…

Jill McGown is a crisp writer and a spellbinding story-teller.
A compelling piece of plotting.
Annie is a fine creation; intelligent, hard-headed, yet vulnerable. She is supported by a strong cast in a well-described setting.
