Feisty Detective Sergeant Kate Lewis is back and this time she needs all her wits about her as she takes on one of the most gruelling and risky investigations of her career.
When the body of missing journalist Ellie Landy is found in the River Parrett by a news crew covering the worst floods the Somerset Levels have suffered in living memory, police assume it is an accidental drowning.
Kate disobeys orders from the top and probes the death, as she suspects this was no accident. When another woman dies in suspicious circumstances, Kate finds herself drawn ever deeper into a nightmare of murder, treachery and perversion.
