Island life can be murder.
Tragedy strikes the Channel Island of Jersey when a wealthy widow is found dead in what is labelled an unfortunate accident.
DCI Jack Le Claire has left the London Metropolitan Police and, he hopes, his recent troubles far behind him. Newly returned to his island home, Le Claire's personal life is in tatters, he's trying to escape his family connections and struggling to prove that he is up to a position some claim he is too young for.
Grace Howard soon realises that greed can be more powerful than grief, especially amongst her own relations. She is shattered by a vile betrayal and, having nowhere to run, makes a shock decision. Will she live to regret it?
Who can you trust when everyone is a stranger?
Le Claire's instincts prove correct and he is soon on the trail of a vicious killer. The body count is rising and Le Claire must battle a web of lies and half-truths as he tries to catch a brutal murderer before they claim yet another victim.
Secrets, lies, betrayal and greed.
A fast-paced thriller with an ending readers say they couldn't guess. "Well, I didn't see that coming!"
This first book in The DCI Jack Le Claire Series introduces us to a beautiful island where secrets are rife. The second book, Blood Ties, can easily be read as a standalone novel and takes DCI Jack Le Claire on a walk through the darker, wilder side of island life. Obsession, lies, desire ... and murder.
