Ocean breezes, island beaches...and murder
Finding the drowned woman's body on the beach is the last thing local newspaper reporter Jennifer Dorey's fragile psyche needs. She moved to the island of Guernsey, England, after a traumatic incident shook her to her core. Probing the woman's death, Jennifer uncovers something far more sinister than she could have imagined.
Jennifer and DCI Michael Gilbert investigate a pattern of similar deaths over the last fifty years. Gilbert joins the journalist on a dark trail of island myths and folklore that leads to the door of a Nazi soldier's illegitimate son. But as Jennifer gets closer to learning the killer's plans, she falls ever deeper into his grasp. And if Jennifer thinks Gilbert can keep her safe, she'd better think again.
