ABOUT THE BOOK

Ann Cleeves—New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of the Vera and Shetland series, both of which are hit TV shows—returns with the extraordinary third novel featuring Detective Matthew Venn.

When Jem Rosco—sailor, adventurer and legend—blows into town in the middle of an autumn gale, the residents of Greystone, Devon are delighted to have a celebrity in their midst.

Just as abruptly as he arrived, Rosco disappears again. The locals think nothing of it; that’s the sort of man he is. Until the lifeboat is launched to a hoax call-out and Rosco's body is found in a dinghy, anchored off Scully Cove, a place with legends of its own.

This is an uncomfortable case for DI Matthew Venn. Greystone is a place he came as a child, and this is a community he parted ways with. Superstition and rumor mix as another body is found in Scully Cove, and Matthew finds his judgement clouded. As the stormy winds howl, and Venn and his team investigate, he realizes that their own lifes might be in danger.
