Former detective Lacey Flint quit the force for a safer, quieter life. Or that’s what she thought. Now living alone on her houseboat, she is trying to get over the man she loves, undercover detective Mark Joesbury. But Mark is missing in action and impossible to forget. And danger won’t leave Lacey alone. When she finds a body floating in the river near her home, wrapped in burial cloths, she can’t resist asking questions. Who is this woman, and why was she hidden in the fast-flowing depths? And who has been delivering unwanted gifts to Lacey? Someone is watching Lacey Flint closely. Someone who knows exactly what makes her tick.

Jumping the shark, I hope not.
I've always liked the characters in this series but this book went a bit odd.
Yeah, I think she's a talent.
... a kind of detached feisty sadness. Not unlike Lacey Flint herself.
Sadly I couldn't wait for it to end. I tried to like it and there were glimmers.
Crabs? Toy boats? Overly convenient deaths. Mermaids? It felt far-fetched. And, err, crabs?? It felt like SJ Bolton rushed this a bit. It felt like certain thoughts weren't completed, that explanations for behaviours and events weren't realistic. Such a shame because I have really enjoyed the Lacey Flint series so far but this, book 4, is something of a washout. I have hope for book 5 though and want to hear more about the interesting Lacey character and her back story which still has to be revealed. Also, Sharon, if you're reading this, make the next one a bit more colourful and less grim please? x

A bit of a slog!
