DI Mariner Series Number 9
On an abandoned campsite in Norfolk, developers unearth a human skeleton. The remains of an eighteen-year-old girl; Robina Scanlon. A blast from the past that shocks Detective Tom Mariner to his core. In the sweltering summer of 1976, the teenage Mariner fell for Robina instantly.
He thought she was the one who got away. Now he realizes she never even left, but was murdered back at the campsite where they met, all those years ago. Mariner drives to Norfolk, his head so full of ghosts he can barely think straight and the mystery of her death becomes a dangerous obsession, distracting him from a perplexing murder case on his home turf of Birmingham. As midnight approaches, someone out there will do anything to keep the past buried . . .
