Three years after surviving a catastrophic flood (Will North's Water, Stone, Heart), twelve year old Lee Trelissick has settled into a safer life with her adoptive parents, Nicola and Andrew. But before long, preternaturally wise Lee announces, “Someone wants to do us harm. Someone evil.”
She's right. A series of increasingly malicious events soon cast a pall over Trevega House and the surrounding village. Arson, poison, a nearly fatal cliffside attack—but no suspect. And finally, a murder. Can Detective Inspector Morgan Davies and her Scene of Crimes manager Calum West protect the strangely prescient girl and stop the killer before it's too late?

This series is Great! Reading it makes Me Feel like I’m on a Vacation!
I only recently stumbled upon this series and am so glad I did. I’m enjoying it immensely. It’s getting better with each book. Great character development and they are all engaging in their own way. I highly recommend and am eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.
I don’t read many mysteries, but this author had used many of the same characters in a romance so I wanted to read more about them. Men writers have a tendency to give me too many characters to keep track of, and that happened here. However, he writes a great mystery. Thought I had it all figured out a couple of times, but was wrong both times. Again, wonderful descriptions of the countryside. Kept me reading, and he rights a good, long book.
