When a girl’s body is found strangled, raped, and horrifically mutilated by a boat’s propeller, deep in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, newly arrived Detective Inspector John Tanner is asked to assist with the investigation.
At first, all the evidence points to a man who had a multi-million pound reason to kill her. But when an alibi is produced from an unexpected source, and another body appears at the base of a slipway, Tanner finds himself turning to local girl, Detective Constable Jenny Evans for help.
As a more intimate relationship begins between them, they find themselves facing a race against time to identify a lethal adversary, one with a lust for blood and a mind set on revenge.
About the book
I would like to thank NetGalley and the author for my ARC in exchange for an honest review. Obviously I read it in English.
Detective Inspector John Tanner is a destroyed man by his daughter’s murder and from the crowded and crime-filled streets of London, he moves to a small village, Wroxham near Norwich, England. Here he is in charge of the Missing Persons section and immediately, on the first day, he finds himself investigating the disappearance of a woman, Jane Richardson, with DC Janny Evans. Soon the disappearance turns into murder and Tanner clashes with a veteran of the department, DI Burgess.
