ABOUT THE BOOK
A string of suicides. A community in terror. And a chilling conspiracy only DI Amy Winter can crack.
A wave of apparent suicides hits a string of seaside resorts, but when a police officer is named as the latest to die, DI Amy Winter suspects there may be more than mere coincidence to these tragic deaths. But what dark motive could cause someone to throw themselves into the cold depths of the North Sea?
Someone in the community knows more than they are letting on, but Amy’s questions are met with resistance. A group of mysterious teenagers might hold the key, but why are they so afraid to talk? Meanwhile, after the release from prison of her serial killer mother, Amy is fighting her own demons.
In her toughest investigation yet, Amy must confront her dark past if she is to put an end to the carnage. What secret is so terrible that it’s worth killing a police officer for? Amy needs to find the answer, before the sea washes up any more bodies.

This is the fourth book in this top series, and although it could be read as a stand-alone, if possible, read the three previous books. Not only will you get a much deeper connection to DI Amy Winter, but the three previous books are also mind-blowing and cement to everything that follows. Amy winter was no ordinary child.
There had been a spate of suicides at different seaside towns, but the latest had sparked interest when the victim had been a police officer. The team head off to Clacton, to figure what the connection to all the victims could be.
What I like about this series is the perfect balance of the professional and private lives of the team. Although both are entwined together where Winter and her boss Donovan are concerned, it is very hush-hush with a spiky side which at times crosses that fine line. We are, after all, human. From the outside looking in they both carry a ton of charisma, the dream team to be envied.
The story has so many threads going on, with the suicides just being the tip of this smouldering volcano. Winters past is never far away as she makes yet another shocking discovery to what despicable depths her parents would sink. What a story this is. I was thrown when it all came together, and I loved the end, I hadn’t seen that coming.
I wish to thank the author for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
