Publisher's Summary

In this absorbing new entry in the acclaimed New York Times best-selling series, Scotland Yard's Ian Rutledge is caught up in a twisted web of vengeance and murder.
On the north coast of Cornwall, an apparent act of mercy is repaid by an arrest for murder. Four young women have been accused of the crime. A shocked father calls in a favor at the Home Office. Scotland Yard is asked to review the case.
However, Inspector Ian Rutledge is not the first inspector to reach the village. Following in the shoes of a dead man, he is told the case is all but closed. Even as it takes an unexpected personal turn, Rutledge will require all his skill to deal with the incensed families of the accused, the grieving parents of the victim, and local police eager to see these four women sent to the infamous Bodmin Gaol. Then why hasn't the killing stopped?
With no shred of evidence to clear the accused, Rutledge must plunge deep into the darkest secrets of a wild, beautiful, and dangerous place if he is to find a killer who may - or may not - hold the key to their fate.

Row, row your boat

The gentle boating expedition turns into a nightmare when the four young women in the boat, trying to rescue a drowning man, are accused of attempted murder. Rutledge is sent to Cornwall to replace another detective who died. He arrives and finds one of the women is Kate, cousin of his pre-war betrothed. Can he keep them out of prison while he tries to untangle the truth from the lies while the number of dead and injured seem to be mounting on this quiet Cornish estuary?

It is surprising to realise that this is the 1920s; there is still very basic medical care from doctors with no hospitals or x-ray machines and other things we now take for granted like telephones or motor cars are not commonplace either.

With no shred of evidence and the initial statements lost, his problems seem insuperable. Can he find any evidence to overturn the accusation and save the women? Nail-biting to the end.
