The eighth novel in the Lydmouth crime series, from the prize-winning author of the Richard and Judy Book Club novel, The American Boy. As a young police officer in Palestine during the closing months of the Mandate - the cradle of Middle Eastern terrorism - Richard Thornhill saw and did things which still haunt his dreams. Is he himself a killer? Now, when a retired police officer is found dead in the ruins of Lydmouth Castle, the past has come back to claim Thornhill, and he is under suspicion of another murder. While his wife Edith and former lover Jill Francis join forces in an uneasy alliance to try to help him, the Spring floods are rising higher than they have in living memory, drowning a multitude of secrets . . .
