The central character is Inspector Vera Stanhope who is obsessive about her work and driven by her own demons. If she’s lonely she doesn’t show it and faces the world with caustic wit, guile and courage. Her trusted and long suffering colleague is Joe Ashworth; he is her right hand man and surrogate son. Together they approach every new case with unparalleled gusto and professionalism.

Set in a contemporary Northumberland close-knit community this engrossing murder mystery centres around the discovery of two beautiful young corpses found floating in water, garlanded with wild flowers.

Vera and Joe are called to the stylised murder scene and as they start to interview the friends and relatives of the victims, sinister secrets are slowly unearthed.
