"As usual, Rowson offers up a thorny, multifaceted plot; a profusion of unusual twists; a likable yet complex hero; and plenty of fast-paced, knuckle-biting action." Booklist
"Those seeking an outstanding British police procedural will devour the ninth entry in Rowson’s sea-oriented series. Rowson’s plotting is deftly layered, and she successfully captures the mood of her protagonist’s tortured journey while creating abundant tension for the main plot of political intrigue." Library Journal USA
When naval historian Dr Douglas Spalding is found dead in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard, the Major Crime Team is adamant it is suicide. Detective Inspector Horton is not so sure. Then another body is found in similar circumstances and Horton is convinced they’re looking at murder; but not so his bosses. Angry and frustrated at the lack of investigation, Horton goes out on a limb to prove he’s right. Whichever way he turns, he finds the deaths have all the hallmarks of a cover up at the highest level, but who is behind it and why? Soon Horton begins to find disturbing similarities with his own private investigations into the disappearance of his mother thirty years ago. As he gets closer to the truth though someone is determined to prevent it from ever coming out, even if means death . . .
"Rowson successfully pilots the complex storyline, filled with wild speculations and a slew of suspects, to a fitting conclusion." Publishers Weekly
"Another solid procedural from Rowson, with a little kick of spy stuff for the adventurous." Kirkus.
