When an explosion erupts from the golden sands of Hunstanton beach on the north Norfolk coast, an abandoned Second World War bomb is assumed to be the cause ... but is it? Could there be a connection to the new pier being built - and the increasingly bitter campaign to halt its construction? At the same time, DI Shaw and DS Valentine are on the hunt for an elderly female killer with a uniquely macabre modus operandi. And a 63-year-old Dutch engineer is missing - presumed drowned ... but where is the body? Three seemingly unrelated investigations - but, in each case, nothing is as it seems. To find the answers, DI Shaw must delve into the past, and a mystery that has remained unsolved for more than sixty years.
I've always liked Mr Kelly's books and this one was no exception. The three cases involved here are fascinating and show how busy things can be even in policing a mostly rural area. Most crime books focus on one team dealing with one case whereas this one probably tells it more like it really is.
