---- Martin Scarsden, last seen in Scrublands, has finished writing his expose on Riversend and is joining his new partner Mandy in Port Silver. She's inherited a house there but he hasn't told her Port Silver is his childhood town, which he couldn't wait to leave - nor that he knows the property she's been left by her grandmother. When he arrives at the unit she's rented for the time being, he stumbles across the still warm body of the real estate agent - a former friend - and finds Mandy covered in blood. So starts another gripping page-turner, full of secrets, shenanigans and assorted sordid and shameful events. As Martin reconnects with his past, and grapples with the present, he could be about to muck up his promising future… I read this in one long go, as I couldn’t bear to put it down! Lindy Jones
For half a lifetime, journalist Martin Scarsden has run from his past. But now there is no escaping.
He'd vowed never to return to his hometown, Port Silver, and its traumatic memories. But now his new partner, Mandy Blonde, has inherited an old house in the seaside town and Martin knows their chance of a new life together won't come again.
Martin arrives to find his best friend from school days has been brutally murdered, and Mandy is the chief suspect. With the police curiously reluctant to pursue other suspects, Martin goes searching for the killer. And finds the past waiting for him.
He's making little progress when a terrible new crime starts to reveal the truth. The media descend on Port Silver, attracted by a story that has it all: sex, drugs, celebrity and religion. Once again, Martin finds himself in the front line of reporting.
Yet the demands of deadlines and his desire to clear Mandy are not enough: the past is ever present.
An enthralling and propulsive thriller from the acclaimed and bestselling author of Scrublands.
