Publisher's Summary

In June 1973 the bodies of three missing teenagers were found on the tiny Scottish island of Fidra. And when his father was arrested for the murders, 11-year-old Miller McAllister's life fell apart. Now, 32 years later, Douglas Mcallister has died in prison, and Miller returns home after decades of self-imposed exile. The rest of his family has always claimed Douglas' innocence, while Miller has always maintained his guilt. But when Miller is given a letter his father wrote to him before his death, suddenly everything looks less clear. Could Douglas have been innocent after all? And if he didn't kill the girls...who did?

"Walker pulls out all the stops in this terrific story. She ratchets up the tension, keeps the clues deftly hidden, and keeps the reader glued to the page." (The Globe and Mail

An atmospheric story

This is very good story of a family split by the tragic murders or three children, which is so full of atmosphere that I can see the island at its centre and almost smell the salt in the air. I also thought the reader was exactly right for the book.

Something special

Of my many audible downloads so far, this has to be my favourite. An excellent who-done-it but a novel in it's own right. Sue Walker is an author to watch.
