A NOVEL by Robert Edric

Trade Paperback.


When the luxury yacht Helen Brooks was last seen on is found abandoned amid the marshlands of the Humber Estuary, foul play is suspected.  However, in the absence of a body, nothing can be proven, and the owner of the yacht —local ambitious businessman, Simon Fowler—is unprepared to offer any explanation as to what Helen was doing on board. A year later, Hull private investigator Leo Rivers is approached by Helen's mother to investigate both her daughter's disappearance and Fowler's own background. Rivers is drawn through a long, hot summer into a world of human trafficking and governmental corruption at every turn.  Each slowly unravelled piece of the mystery moves him further from the vanished girl and into a web of exploitation, greed, temptation, revenge and violence, from which even he is unable to extricate himself without unforeseen and tragic circumstances.

"Edric is a terrific storyteller but he also provides a pretty accurate picture of modern-day crime and the way that it affects so many people.  Impressive stuff."  The Observer.

"Edric's labyrinthine narrative is played out against a stifling Northern summer and the sultrily evoked Hull settings suggest the brilliant American crime writers James Lee Burke and Dennis Lehane… Like his American peers, Edric is anything but parochial: the North presented here is English society seen through a glass darkly."  The Sunday Express.

"In this superior, self-deprecating thriller, the workings of the plot are secondary to the elegiac realism of the story." The Daily Telegraph.

"Edric has taken many of the ingredients of the classic mystery to provide a realistic an convincing plot." The Times Literary Supplement.
