In Yorke, England, the neighbor felt something seemed off kilter within the Williams bungalow. The neighbor called the police who conclude that Max and Amanda Williams apparently disappeared. Detective Inspector George Hennessey begins to trace the trail left by the Williams although his gut expects the worse.

Not too long afterward, the murdered corpses of the Williams couple is found in a shallow grave. George picks up the pace of his inquiries, especially since no one seems to gain anything from the death of the duo. As he digs past their serene surface, he begins to uncover darker secrets involving Max and Amanda that they probably never shared with each other.

Peter Turnbull, already renowned for police procedurals, introduces a new series that will garner the author new acclaim. The story line in the opening Hennessey tale, FEAR OF DROWNING, is superb as the plot centers on the police struggling with a difficult case to solve. Hennessey is an intriguing protagonist suffering from his own demons while the support cast, especially his partner, provides local flavor. Mr. Turnbull has another triumphant tale that will thrill sub-genre fans.
