He stumbled upon what they tried to hide. Now he can’t let it go.
They left her body in a wasteland. Her face, frozen in pain and terror, will haunt Malcolm Goodman for the rest of his days.
The police, understaffed and overwhelmed, dismiss him as a sad old man, tormented by his daughter’s tragic death decades earlier. But Malcolm understands something they don’t: that a ruthless killer stalks the community, willing to do whatever it takes to keep his secret hidden.
In a small English coastal town that has seen better days, Malcolm Goodman—war hero, pensioner, and amateur detective—unravels the mystery he cannot ignore, while struggling to lay to rest the ghosts of his own past.
