A woman goes missing – and for the detective, this time it's personal.
Criminologist Martin Knight lives a gilded life. But then his wife Liz disappears. There is no good explanation and Martin goes on the run.
To make things worse, Liz is the ex-girlfriend of DCI Craig Gillard who finds himself drawn into the investigation.
Is this a missing-person case or something more sinister? How dark can the truth be?
Utterly gripping and full of twists, this is a compulsive thriller from master Nick Louth for fans of Robert Bryndza, Patricia Gibney and Carole Wyer.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
A detective should never let a case get personal, but the hero of this gritty mystery doesn’t have a choice. Craig Gillard is a good cop with a pesky vigilante streak, but things get complicated when he’s pulled into the hunt for the missing Liz Knight, a respected school administrator who also happens to be his ex-girlfriend. The chaos only multiplies when Liz’s husband, Martin, an arrogant but highly respected academic with friends in high places, also disappears. The investigation that follows is thrilling, rife with domestic drama and romantic twists we never saw coming. In the first book of his ongoing DCI Gillard series, author Nick Louth amplifies the darkness of the tale by using picture-perfect British suburbia as a backdrop for a truly sordid tale. The Body in the Marsh is a hard-to-put-down read.
