Publisher's Summary

Kings Richington is an affluent, self-satisfied little town, nestling on a quiet stretch of the Thames. So when a mutilated body is found floating in the river, the influential residents close ranks and demand a discreet police cover-up. DI Jack Dawes is assigned to the case and soon upsets some powerful people but their attempts to put a stop to his intrusive enquiries are foiled when the town is shaken by more murders. The wealthy inhabitants of Kings Richington seem a model of respectability but no detective worth his salt puts much faith in outward appearances and, despite orders to the contrary, Jack is determined to penetrate the facade. What he finds exposes dark depravity within their sanctimonious world...

    "Predictable plot, dreadful reader"

    I just have to start paying attention to the names of readers when I buy titles. This guy - Gordon Griffin - keeps catching me!

    Why he has this job, I don't know. He reads every character identically and, worst of all, has a very sing-song voice which ends EVERY sentence (ok, 96.5% of them) in an upward lilt, so that the whole book sounds like a series of questions. Aaargh.

    The book itself was predictable and dull, the characters almost charicatures. Second book by this author that I haven't bothered to finish. It also seems to be located in a mythical middle England where time stood still - completely unrealistic. No way does the British police service operate this way!

    "Shocking story of hidden treachery"

    This is the first Frances Lloyd book I've read. She does a good job of compelling you through the story.

    "Don't Buy --- not worth the money."

    It started off pretty good but soon was a little gross. Then it got silly and predictable. Not that interesting.
