Summary
  • Bribery & corruption: Nichoas Hawthorne has always had a schoolboy crush on Emma, the lovely, free-spirited wife of the shipyard owner who employed his father. But after her murder, he learns that Emma's life was far more complicated - and troubled - than he had suspected
  • Front seat: Hugh Branksome never expected to return to the seaside town where his wife Cecily grew up. Retirement holds even more surprises, though, when Cecily enlists an old flame in a quixote quest to solve a decades-old murder
  • A case of coincidence: In the autumn of 1954, a surgeon's wife seems to have become the fifth victim of a serial killer who has stalked the Fenland region since spring. The police remain confounded, however, because they had their prime suspect under surveillance all the while
  • A dark blue perfume: Through the charms of her new neighbor, newly widowed Liz rediscovers love. But could his mysterious past conceal a murder?
  • May & June: May Thrace's resentment of her sister June runs deep. Will the death of June's husband - and Mary's former beau - put it to rest? Or does May have a darker plot in mind
  • The orchard walls: Sent by her mother to live in the country during the London blitz, 16-year-old Jenny senses unspoken secrets among her taciturn relatives - secrets that could turn deadly
