A body is dragged from the water. It holds a deadly secret. Touch it and you might be next to die...

The small community of Borth is rocked by the discovery of a mutilated corpse in the treacherous wilderness bordering the sea.

The identity of the gruesome remains is a mystery but within days there is a second death to investigate. Then a third.

The police are baffled by the disparity in age, sex and manner of death of the victims. Psychological profiler Megan Rhys is supposed to be on holiday but as she is drawn into the murder inquiry her forensic skills are tested to the limit by a ruthless killer who will guard the secrets of the past no matter what the cost.

'Gritty, streetwise and raw... with an authenticity and detail born of Ashford's own journalistic experience.' Denise Hamilton, author of the Eve Diamond crime novels (for Frozen).
