SynopsisA chilling and suspenseful tale, perfect for fans of Susan Hill and Elizabeth George. A lifeboat crashes on the shore of a small fishing village, leaving all three of its passengers dead. A tragic accident—perhaps—but Detective Marjory Fleming is not so sure … The steep decline of the fishing industry has brought a new and bustling drug trade to town. Were the victims in over their heads? Or was this the work of a person so determined to kill one of the crew that he took two innocent lives? The depressed, impoverished community is clamoring for justice, and Fleming is determined to unravel the mystery before the body count rises.
About the AuthorAline Templeton grew up in the fishing village of Anstruther, in the East Neuk of Fife. She has worked in education and broadcasting and was a Justice of the Peace for ten years. Married, with two grown-up children and three grandchildren, she now lives in a house with a view of Edinburgh Castle.

This was a great book. I love the mystery and the humor to balance out some of the tragedy of this story. this is well written and easy to connect to.
Marjory is a great character . I love that she is a mom and a farmer's daughter. I was able to relate to her character better than most in other crime novels I have read. I loved this book and it's plot. The ending was perfect and I can't wait to read more of Templeton's work!
