Gruesome black thriller set in Sweden
Location(s): North Yorkshire
Surrey-based Damien Marks has no idea that his wife has employed a private investigator to check up on him. And she has no idea that a police team in York sees his inexplicable behaviour in a far more sinister light. He is the prime suspect in a murder enquiry.
Detective Superintendent Martyn Webber is appalled to find private investigator Annie Raymond slap bang in the middle of his case. Not that he takes her seriously, but he has his own secrets that he can’t afford for her to find. Then the death of a peripheral witness turns the investigation on its head.
Meanwhile, oblivious to the entanglements of the adult world around her, schoolgirl Olivia Lamb hugs to herself the secret of the ghost hands she saw in the surging waters of a York flash flood.
