When the decomposed body of a young woman is found near some railway tracks just outside Bristol one hot May morning, all indications are that she committed suicide. That's how the police want it too -- all neatly squared away. But DI Jack Caffery is not so sure. He is on the trail of someone predatory, someone who hides in the shadows and can slip into houses unseen. And for the first time in a very long time, he feels scared.

Police diver Flea Marley is working alongside Caffery. With the traumas of her past safely behind her, she's beginning to wonder whether her relationship with Caffery could go beyond the professional. And then she makes a discovery that changes everything. Not only is it far too close to home for comfort, but it's so horrifying that she knows nothing will ever be the same again. And this time, no one -- not even Caffery -- can help her. . . .

English crime thriller about a series of murders/suicides being investigated by a police diver and a a detective. The bodies have shown signs that of gruesome mutilation - the skin and hair of some of them have been removed. Alot of getting used to the English lingo and certain towns and cities. Average book.

I couldn't really get into this book. I felt like the author jumped around with the plot, almost like she didn't even have a clear idea of it before putting it to paper
