Now living in a houseboat on the River Thames, Lacey Flint is becoming a part of London’s weird and wonderful riverboat community. But at dawn one hot summer morning, Lacey finds the body of a shrouded young woman in the river. She assumes it was chance—after all she's recently joined the marine policing unit—but further investigation leads her team to suspect it was deliberately left for her to find. She is no longer a detective, but as she begins to suspect someone is watching her very closely, she can't help but be drawn into the investigation.
In A Dark and Twisted Tide, award-winning author Sharon Bolton has once again crafted a tightly-plotted, utterly unpredictable thriller around one of the most compelling characters in crime fiction today, enigmatic London police officer Lacey Flint.
