Synopsis

An apparently straightforward case turns into something far more sinister for Detective Superintendent Henry Christie Detective Superintendent Henry Christie is in the middle of a case involving the horrific murder of a teenage girl when he is called in to investigate the drowning of Jennifer Sunderland, wife of local businessman Harry Sunderland.

As Henry starts to dig a simple case of drowning turns into a complex web of deceit, theft, murder and a criminal conspiracy stretching all the way from the UK to Eastern Europe.
