Nestled on the east coast of Scotland, with rolling hills to one side and the sun glinting over the gentle swell of the sea on the other, St Giles is not the place you’d expect to find a dead body…
August 1902. A family trip to Scotland to visit her in-laws had been Eliza’s idea. But now they were here, she wondered what she’d been thinking of. Archie’s parents were less than pleased to see her but at least she had best friend Connie to keep her company.
On their second evening in the village, Eliza and Connie spot an unidentifiable shape on the beach, but with the light fading and high tide approaching, they are warned to stay away.
When the shape is confirmed to be the dead body of an elderly ex-resident, there are questions to answer.
Why was she in St Giles? And who knew she was visiting?
With no apparent reason for her death, Eliza struggles to uncover a motive for murder. But when past indiscretions surface, it’s clear that long held secrets refuse to stay hidden...
