Human remains and a lonely pile of clothes on the beach. Is it murder, suicide… or an impossible conundrum?
Detective Sergeant Norman Norman likes the idea of a permanent home in the small Welsh coastal town. With his reinvented career invigorating him, he finds himself enjoying working for his younger female boss, DI Sarah Southall.
But when she asks him to investigate a puzzling seaside suicide, his first job is to find the corpse belonging to the discarded clothing left on the sand. But, with the deceased man’s remains presumed lost at sea, DS Norman believes his case has run up a blind alley.
But then local builders dig up a female human skull, and now with a pair of unsolved deaths on his hands, the dogged policeman’s work takes a tricky turn when he discovers an astonishing link between them.
Can the shrewd detective solve a complex puzzle and lay two souls to rest?
