Thriller Police Procedural
A darkly told crime novel in the tradition of Tana French
and Ian Rankin, featuring the return of THE BIRDWATCHER's
Sergeant Alexandra Cupidi is a recent transfer from the
London metro police to the rugged Kentish countryside. She's
done little to ingratiate herself with her new colleagues,
who find her too brash, urban, and--to make matters worse,
she investigated her first partner, a veteran detective, and
had him arrested on murder charges. Now assigned the brash
young Constable Jill Ferriter to look after, she's facing
another bizarre case: a woman found floating in local marsh
land, dead of no apparent cause.
The case gets even stranger when the detectives contact the
victim's next of kin, her son, a high-powered graphic
designer living in London. Adopted at the age of two, he'd
never known his mother, he tells the detectives, until a
homeless womanknocked on his door, claiming to be his
mother, just the night before: at the same time her body was
being dredged from the water.
Juggling the case, her aging mother, her teenage daughter,
and the loneliness of country life, Detective Cupidi must
discover who the woman really was, who killed her, and how
she managed to reconnect with her long lost son, apparently
from beyond the grave.
