Publisher's Summary

A hot summer on the Northumberland coast and Julie Armstrong arrives home from a night out to find her son strangled, laid out in a bath of water and covered with wildflowers. 

This stylised murder scene has Inspector Vera Stanhope intrigued. But then another body is discovered in a rock pool, the corpse again strewn with flowers. Vera must work quickly to find this killer who is making art out of death. 

As local residents are forced to share their deepest, darkest secrets, the killer watches, waits and plans to prepare another beautiful, watery grave....

Keeps you guessing

A bit of a slow story line and did not pick up as normally Ann Cleeves
Books do, but did keep you guessing till the end which was the good part of her books.

Unbearable attempt at Regional accents made for an excruciating listen. Sorry not worth the pain!

Characters not well defined. Didn’t really see the point of some of them. Didn’t finish- as per title.

Good Story

but why does the narrator make all the male detectives sound like simpletons, other than that she has a pleasing voice

Couldn’t get into it

Not read the series before and gave it a go. Wanted to return after the first few chapters but reviews were positive so decided to stick with it but took me ages to want to listen over a few weeks. Didn’t enjoy it and thought was really slow. Didn’t make me want to read the others and usually I love crime dramas.
