Editorial Reviews

Review

A drought has caused the level of Cranwell Lake to drop. Drop further that it ever has since 1972. At the end of a row of staithes near the beach, a body floats just beneath the surface. For Hannah Morton it is a return to her teenage years. For detectives Porteous and Stout it is the start of a trawl through the missing persons files in search of an identity - only to discover that Michael Gray is not who he seemed... After a slow start the plot gradually gains pace, switching between Hannah's memories, the police investigation and a fresh murder case. Ann Cleeves leaves the reader guessing till the end - a surprise finish unhinted at during the preceding pages. A good, solid English detective novel with the added bonus of Cleeve's finely drawn, often troubled, main players. - Lucy Watson
