Rated 0

Crime & mystery

The latest in a thrilling new police procedural series set in Scarborough and following DCI Donna Morris, middle-aged, seemingly ordinary - but hiding many secrets.

A body pulled from the harbour drags DC Donna Morris into murky waters...

The lives of the people of Scarborough have always been tied to the sea. Often their deaths too. And when the body of a young man is pulled from the harbour, the police investigation has to dive into the tightly knit fishing community there. But DC Donna Morris, halfway through her probationary period in the town, finds very little is at it seems.

Is the killing to do with old rivalries or more contemporary enmities, or is it somehow linked with a shocking murder which took place in the town twenty years ago? Donna does her best to navigate the tides and currents of the place she calls home for now, but finds people are prepared to muddy the truth if it means preserving the past, and old reputations.
