The Mill on the Shore is the seventh mystery novel featuring George and Molly Palmer-Jones by Ann Cleeves, author of the Shetland and Vera Stanhope crime series.

Meg Morrissey refuses to believe that her husband James committed suicide.

James was in high spirits because he'd finally completed his long-awaited autobiography. He didn't leave a suicide note. But even more suspiciously, the record of his life's environmental achievement, his magnum opus, has gone missing. Troubled, Meg calls in amateur sleuths George and Molly Palmer-Jones to investigate. They soon uncover that life in the Morrissey family is not as idyllic as it seems - relations with ex-wife Cathy are not as friendly as Meg makes out and James appears to have fallen for another woman. But the disappearance of his autobiography is most puzzling of all. Did he uncover a secret so damaging that someone was prepared to kill for it?

George and Molly must try to fit together the missing pieces of information to reveal who could have wanted James dead . . .
