Publisher's Summary

The honeymoon was over...and Jim and his English bride, Sarah, had come home to Kinness to settle down. But first there was to be one huge celebration for the newlyweds, with the whole island present. And before the party was over, there would be a shockingly unexpected death.

Somehow, in the dark of the night, Jim's young sister, Mary, slipped off Ellie's Head to the rocks below. But did Mary fall, or was she pushed?

George Palmer-Jones, retired birdwatcher and amateur detective, suspected the latter, but proving it would be difficult. Yet those with something to hide inevitably try to hide it, and George, helped by Sarah, began to piece together a tragic story he wished he had never heard.

    I tend to use audible like you would use a book shop. I browse most days and delight in finding a new author or series of books.

    Story
    "Catches the atmosphere of the Isles perfectly."

    No light relief in this book. Reminds me of Sunday's in Scotland when activities were frowned upon and what people thought of you was paramount. Not my favourite Ann Cleeves book

    Story
    "Good bedtime listening"

    Vivid descriptions of the island life. Slow burn, not a lot of suspense. Dampened action.
