When a woman goes missing, it gets personal for DCI Craig Gillard. But he could never imagine what happens next.
Criminologist Martin Knight lives a gilded life and is a thorn in the side of the police. But then his wife Liz goes missing. There is no good explanation and no sign of Martin…
To make things worse, Liz is the ex-girlfriend of DCI Craig Gillard who is drawn into the investigation. Is it just a missing person or something worse? And what relevance do the events around the shocking Girl F case, so taken up by Knight, have to do with the present?
The truth is darker than you could ever have imagined.

I couldn’t even start this book.
The first paragraph was beyond overwhelming in the most underwhelming way. Like way too much words and descriptions that are too elaborate for the first few sentences.... sorry but I don’t want to read past the first page if this is how this book “flows” at the very start.
Where was the body in the marsh?
Despite the title this is an involving and surprising read.
The characters had a lot of depth and history while the author wove a complicated trail or mystery and red herrings.
A pretty good book and would read more titles from this author.
The body in the marsh
After wading through the long introduction a good story emerged. I was totally taken in & could not put it down until completed.
