Drowning Not Waving

Author(s): Kate Evans

Location(s): Scarborough

Genre(s): Crime

Era(s): Modern

Through the centuries, the sea has brought death as well as life to the small seaside town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire. When the body of a young man is pulled from the harbour, the police investigation has to dive into the tightly knit fishing community. DC Donna Morris, now halfway through her probationary period in the town, finds very little is at it seems.

Is the killing to do with old rivalries or more contemporary enmities, particularly disputes over the pollution of the seas? Or is it somehow linked with a shocking murder which took place in the town twenty years ago? Donna does her best to navigate the tides and currents of the place she calls home for now, but find people are prepared to muddy the truth if it means preserving the past, and their reputations.
