Dark nights and darker deeds. This Cornish fishing village hides a deadly secret.
Malachite Peck has never run from a fight, but when she needs to keep a low profile, she retreats to the idyllic Golden, to start over. Running a bookshop was never her idea of a dream career, but she wasn’t expecting the nightmare that awaits her.
The discovery of a body during the shop renovations destroys everything. The community is shaken to its core when its identity is revealed and now, ancient family feuds and suspicions threaten to tear the village apart.
Mal has her own reasons for not being involved in a murder investigation. However, when her only friend is arrested, she is determined to clear his name.
Sometimes a good woman has no choice but to fight for what is right. No matter the cost to her own privacy. But when Mal’s life is threatened, she begins to doubt her instincts.
Maybe the police know what they are doing after all. Could the killer be closer than she thinks?
