The Chale Bay Murders (7)

Suspicious lights at sea, decomposing bodies and an old flame send Detective Inspector Andy Horton down a rabbit hole in this captivating crime thriller.

The Chale Bay Murders

An elderly man obsessively watches the coast from his Victorian house high on the hill above Ventnor on the Isle of Wight When he observes mysterious lights out at sea, he reports them to the police.  The local police think he’s a bit of a nuisance. And when Horton interviews him he’s inclined to agree. A judgement he may bitterly regret.

Meanwhile a call comes through from Horton’s partner, DS Cantelli. A woman’s decomposing body is pulled out of the sea, wearing a Victorian-style dress. The post-mortem gives them a massive shock.

And when another body is found, Horton thinks he’s got a serial killer on his hands. At this point the last thing he needs is his old girlfriend showing up.
