Myra Swinley is convinced that her police constable husband’s death was no accident, and that he would never have lost his footing on a dark, foggy November night on the quayside of Newhaven Harbour while on his beat. Determined to get to the truth she visits Scotland Yard to ask his former friend, Detective Superintendent Street, to investigate.   Street says they have no basis to do so, but when Myra fails to return home from her visit to the Yard, Inspector Ryga is sent down to the Sussex coast to investigate. 

Accompanied by former war photographer, Eva Paisley, who has been airlifted back to England after suffering a wound incurred in Korea, Ryga’s investigation soon begins to uncover some puzzling facts.  Painstakingly, and with Eva’s assistance, Ryga begins to unravel the mystery of why an ordinary police constable was murdered and his sensible law-abiding wife has gone missing.

About Inspector Alun Ryga

Ryga is a former German prisoner-of-war. His  ship was seized by a German Raider in 1941 as a result of which he spent the rest of the  war incarcerated in MILAG, (Marine Internierten Lager).  Here he had to learn how to cope with the  uncertainty, fear and deprivations of forced incarceration with no option but  to wait, hope and pray that the war would soon be over and the Nazis would be  defeated.  

His experience has made him  observant, analytical and reflective.  It  has also given him insights into his fellow man.  He’s witnessed compassion, cruelty, cowardice and heroism, mental breakdown and despair. He’s made a promise to himself that  whatever happens after the war he’ll keep an open mind and never judge. 

His experience at sea, and as a  prisoner-of-war, have made him unique in his approach to solving coastal based  crimes.
