Waterstones Says

The breathtaking new DCI Karen Pirie thriller from the peerless Val McDermid finds the maverick detective reopening a case from a decade before when a body is suddenly pulled from the sea.  

Longlisted for the McIlvanney Prize 2021

Longlisted for the Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2021

The bodies never stay buried forever ...

On a freezing winter morning, fishermen pull a body from the sea. It is quickly discovered that the dead man was the prime suspect in a decade-old investigation, when a prominent civil servant disappeared without trace. DCI Karen Pirie was the last detective to review the file and is drawn into a sinister world of betrayal and dark secrets.

But Karen is already grappling with another case, one with even more questions and fewer answers. A skeleton has been discovered in an abandoned campervan and all clues point to a killer who never faced justice - a killer who is still out there.

In her search for the truth, Karen uncovers a network of lies that has gone unchallenged for years. But lies and secrets can turn deadly when someone is determined to keep them hidden for good ...
