Introducing veteran Scotland Yard Chief Inspector Peter Cammon, this novel finds Cammon journeying to the Jurassic Coast to solve a seemingly ordinary domestic crime.
At first glance, the perpetrator appears to have murdered his wife before drowning in the English Channel, but Cammon soon learns that his case is merely a sideshow. A broader series of murders has been unfolding along the cliffs, baffling the local police. Realizing that his assignment cannot be completed without figuring out the serial killings that threaten the region, the detective travels from London, Dorset, and Devon to the island of Malta, relentlessly following the overlapping threads of the two cases to their shocking climax.
The first installment in a series of three, this cliffhanger sets a chilling tone for the British sleuth's forthcoming mysteries.

First and Last, hopefully
Mr. Doyle, absolutely; Mr. Whellams, not a chance.
Yes, he's a fine narrator./reader/performer.
This book needed a strong editor with a lot of red ink. The lead character was not developed in any meaningful way. Instead he seemed to be a sexist, simple-minded git whose proclivity for secrecy was responsible for several deaths. I think the local chief of police was on the right track to insist the dolt be called back to London.
