Publisher Comments:

Lacey Flint, Sharon Boltons enigmatic protagonist, has been living in a houseboat on the River Thames, and shes becoming a part of Londons weird and wonderful riverboat community. Against her friends better judgment, shes taken up swimming in the Thames, and she feels closer than ever to Detective Mark Joesbury, despite his involvement in a complicated undercover case. For the first time in her life, as she recovers from the trauma of the last few months, Lacey begins to feel almost happy.

Then, at dawn one hot summer morning while swimming down the river, Lacey finds the body of a shrouded young woman in the water. She assumes it was chance—after all, she's recently joined the marine policing unit, and she knows how many dead bodies are pulled out of the river every year, most the result of tragic accidents. But further investigation leads her policing team to suspect the womans body was deliberately left for Lacey to find. Laceys no longer a homicide detective, but as she begins to notice someone keeping a strangely close eye on her, shes inexorably drawn into the investigation.

Award-winning author Sharon Bolton has once again crafted a tightly plotted, utterly unpredictable thriller around one of the most compelling characters in crime fiction today, intensely private London police officer Lacey Flint, whose penchant for keeping secrets is only matched by her determination to uncover those of others.

Review:

"Someone is snuffing the life out of young women, then shrouding their weighted bodies before tossing them into the Thames, in Bolton's haunting fourth novel featuring London police officer Lacey Flint (after 2013's Lost). Though the former detective constable has recently transferred to the Marine Unit in hopes of putting a string of disturbing cases behind her, she's ordered to work on the investigation, since the inquiry was launched by her discovery of one of the victims while she was swimming in the river near her houseboat. Despite considerable personal turmoil — including having her lover, Det. Insp. Mark Joesbury, disappear on an undercover job — it's not long before she's immersing herself in the increasingly dangerous hunt for a possible serial killer targeting illegal Afghan immigrants. Bolton sweeps the reader along with Lacey until finally running aground after a few twists too many. Agent: Anne-Marie Doulton, Ampersand Agency (U.K.).

I very seldom give a 5 star rating, even for books I thoroughly enjoy. Usually there will be a couple of things I would change, thus it's not perfect for me. There's not one thing I would change about this book. It is gripping suspense, some creepy characters and chilling situations. There is no fluff, no page after page of gratuitous romance or boring irrelevant back stories. Don't know how I missed this author but now that I've found Sharon Bolton, I do want to read the first 3 in the Lacey Flint series. I highly recommend for suspense fans.
