A body in a bunker on a disused golf course, a woman with a gun, and a web of international intrigue... DI Andy Horton's holiday peace is shattered when stepping out across an abandoned golf course on the Isle of Wight on a cold, grey January morning, he finds himself facing a distraught young woman with a gun in her hand, leaning over a corpse in one of the discarded bunkers. When she professes to be the dead man's sister and psychic, Horton's old adversary, DCI Birch, is convinced she is a mentally disturbed killer, but Horton is not so sure. Soon he is uncovering a web of intrigue that ripples down the years, and which someone is determined should never be revealed... A complex, compelling mystery full of atmosphere, menace and action.
