'Brilliantly atmospheric' DAILY RECORD.
Things are getting back to normal at Kinloch police office, but a cast of New Jersey gangsters, upmarket Edinburgh lawyers, wily locals and a shipwreck from long ago are about to complicate matters for Daley's team.
When rich American hotelier Alice Wenger arrives in Kinloch there are more than a few raised eyebrows. Her real name is Alison Doig, and as a teenager she disappeared over thirty years ago under odd circumstances. Many presumed her dead. The Doig family have a dark history, with rumours of wrecking, smuggling, stolen gold and cruelty. This is not going to be a happy family reunion and they will have to fight to conceal their past.
