Eddy seems so much more human in this book. Really enjoyed it and the plot had enough twists but was still plausible. Looking forward to six. Well read Mr Camm, as always.

Eighteen painful months ago, jockey Danny Clark's fiancée Kirsty was murdered. Now he's found happiness with her best friend, Tara - though it seems strange to move Tara into Kirsty's place in the cottage. Tara is on a knife edge. She's focused not on her future with Danny but on her past. A trainee solicitor, Tara knows enough to put her corrupt former employer and his drug-baron client in prison for years.

Theresa is desperate for a change. Forced into early retirement, fed up with babysitting her bossy daughter's obnoxious children, she sells her Highgate house and moves to the picture-perfect town of Bellevue-sur-Mer, just outside Nice. With its beautiful villas, bustling cafes and shimmering cerulean sea, the village sparkles like a diamond on the French Mediterranean coast.
