There are lots of memories here. The worst memory is the loss of his brother and his diving boat partner during a freak storm. Add to it, a young teenager's disappearance. And now, an artist and waitress who is loved by the community shows up dead. Kieran has to decide if the long ago cases and the present day one have something or someone in common. There are many possible suspects and Harper strings them all along in a satisfying way for mystery lovers.— Valerie

“Jane Harper returns with another atmospheric psychological suspense novel, this time set on the Tasmanian coast. Harper’s landscapes are tangible, exquisitely drawn, and as important to her stories as any character. The laid back and beautiful — but slightly run-down — beach town of Evelyn Bay is the star. Though there is a new body and an old mystery here, the novel focuses more on the inner conflicts, guilt, and secrets of its characters — a close group of lovers, friends, and family who are all holding back parts of their past. Reading the book was like watching the waves lap at the mouths of dark caves from a Tasmanian beach. An excellent escape!”
