A drowned man. A missing teenager. A deadly secret.

When Emmy Leach discovers the body of a drug addict, wrapped in a tent and submerged in the icy waters of a Cumbrian tarn, she causes more than one problem for investigating officer DCI Jude Satterthwaite. Not only does the discovery revive his first, unsolved, case, but the case reveals Emmy’s complicated past and opens old wounds on the personal front, regarding Jude’s relationship with his colleague and former partner, Ashleigh O’Halloran.

A traditional British detective novel set in Cumbria.

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

Book seven in the DCI Satterthwaite series is set in Cumbria and is a compelling medley of police procedural, family drama and domestic suspense. The investigation team have a believable dynamic, and the reader gets insight into their personal lives, which makes them relatable.

I love the atmospheric setting that complements the suspenseful plot and draws the reader into this poignant, twisty story. The story is complete, but the ongoing relationships are best appreciated if you read in order. There are plot twists and secret reveals, and the pacing makes it an easy, engaging read.
