Murder rocks an English seaside town, and a police detective must put the pieces together in this tense crime thriller.
DS Adam Burnt has been called to a crime scene where a young man lies stabbed to death amid signs of a struggle—and not far away, another young man has been fatally hit by a truck.

As the clues unfold, DS Burnt begins a game of cat and mouse. What links the case to a doctor and a psychiatric hospital? Trying to juggle his personal life and the job, Burnt must navigate the seaside town of Great Yarmouth and the surrounding areas to catch a killer . . .
