The island of Tresco holds a dark secret someone will kill to protect. Ben Kitto has become Deputy Commander in the Isles of Scilly Police. As the islands' lazy summer takes hold, he finds himself missing the excitement of the murder squad in London. But when the body of professional diver Jude Trellon is discovered, anchored to the rocks of a nearby cave, his investigative skills are once again needed. At first it appears that the young woman's death was a tragic accident, but when evidence suggests otherwise, the islanders close ranks. With even those closest to the victim refusing to talk, it seems that plenty of islanders had reason to harm her. As the community remains guarded, Ben Kitto discovers that terrible secrets lie beneath the waters around Tresco, and the killer may soon strike again. Everyone is a suspect. Nobody is safe. Praise for Kate Rhodes: 'Kate Rhodes directs her cast of suspects with consummate skill, keeping us guessing right to the heartbreaking end. I'm a fan' Louise Candlish 'Evocative, immersive, twisty' Sarah Vaughan ‘A vividly realised protagonist whose complex and harrowing history rivals the central crime storyline' Sophie Hannah, Daily Express ‘A pacy psychological thriller' Laura Wilson, Guardian 'Kate writes so beautifully and with such an authentic sense of place.
