Summary Alice Rice-"a strong female detective on the Scottish crime scene"-must stem the tide of murder in a new thriller from the author of The Road to Hell ( The Bookbag ). A young disabled girl is lost on a winter's night in Leith, unable to help herself or find her way home. Someone is combing the streets, frantically searching for her. Within hours of her disappearance, a body is washed up on Beamer Rock, a tiny island in the River Forth being used as part of the foundations for the new Queensferry bridge. No sooner has Det. Inspector Alice Rice managed to discover the identity of that body than another one is washed up on the edge of the estuary in Belhaven Bay. What is the connection between the two bodies? Are there other victims in the killer's sights? If so, can Alice solve the puzzle before another life is taken? In this novel, the sixth in the series, appearances belie reality, and truths and falsehoods gradually merge, becoming indistinguishable.
