First in a new series featuring Rina Martin
After a successful acting career Rina Martin is retired; DI Sebastian McGregor Mac is recovering his nerve after an investigation went terribly wrong; young George Parker and his family are on the run from a violent past. Like Mac and Rina, George thinks he is safe in the sleepy seaside town of Frantham, but then an old lady is murdered and peace, for all three, is proven to be an illusion . . .
“Adams proves her versatility with the new series, a solid village procedural with a clever plot and skilfully drawn characters. Fans of M. C. Beaton and Clare Curzon will find Adams right up their alley” — Booklist
