On a hot summer on the Northumberland coast, Julie Armstrong arrives home from a night out to find her son murdered.

But now, Vera must work quickly to find this killer who is making art out of death.
As local residents are forced to share their private lives, sinister secrets are slowly unearthed. And all the while the killer remains in their midst, waiting for an opportunity to prepare another beautiful, watery grave....

Just a fabulous book

Any additional comments?

I've listened to all the Shetland books and read several of Cleeves' early works. Although the Shetland TV shows are probably the best TV made in the last 5 years, the Vera (book) series is turning out to be the best reads. Also the reader for this one is so good. She doesn't does that sweet, smiley uplift of the voice when something sentimental or cutesy is said.

Thank You Ann Cleeves

The Vera Stanhope mysteries have kept me intrigued and entertained for hours. Vera is a unique and fascinating character.

In this book the characters are well developed and interesting. The descriptions of the people and places were evocative for me - I could mentally picture them as I read the story. The mystery is good - I didn't guess the outcome ahead of time.

Narrator Ann Dover is superb.

I expect I will listen to this book (and others in the series) over and over again.
