A BODY FOUND IN THE WATER EXPOSES DARK FAMILY SECRETS AND INFIDELITY

A gripping British mystery full of twists and turns
Private detective Doug Mullen discovers a body floating in the River Thames. He doesn't tell the police that he knows who it is, and when he is hired to investigate the dead man, matters get very complicated. Mullen is used to tracking down cheating husbands, not ruthless killers. The victim turns out to have been playing a complex game of deception with more than one woman.

As Mullen gets closer to tracking down the killer, he finds himself in grave danger. Unless he can crack the case, Detective Inspector Dorkin may pin the crime on him, or those with secrets to hide may put him out of circulation.

Mullen fights for his life as this fast-moving mystery reaches its stunning conclusion.

If you like Angela Marsons, Colin Dexter, Ruth Rendell, or Mark Billingham you will be gripped by this compelling crime fiction writer.

DEAD IN THE WATER is the first in a new series of detective thrillers featuring Doug Mullen — ex-army, ex-runaway, struggling human being — and recently set up as a private detective, with his only work coming from tracking down cheating husbands.
