"Catholic guilt, monstrous hypocrisy and all kinds of fishy business are explored in an atmosphere of creeping dread"

Best known for her Detective’s Daughter series featuring clue-hunting cleaner Stella Darnell, Thomson lets rip in this standalone novel. Catholic guilt, monstrous hypocrisy and all kinds of fishy business are explored in an atmosphere of creeping dread. The plot may go round in circles, but the climactic shipwreck is deeply impressive.
