Tricia Parker was a woman with a past; one that led to a marriage break-up and the complete severance of ties to her very wealthy ex-husband and daughter. Fifteen years later, Tricia suddenly appears, wanting to talk to her daughter, and a day later, Tricia’s body washes up on an underwater road. The prime suspects are her daughter and ex-husband, who are summering in St. Andrews.
Friends who see their predicament contact Donovan and Beth, who are no strangers to murder, and who have certain skills in solving crimes.
As Donovan begins piecing together the elements of the case, he happens upon an old acquaintance, a particularly nasty art thief who shouldn’t even be in that part of the country.
The Body On The Underwater Road is a story set in two countries. It’s about estranged families, old money, and secrets. And murder.
