DCI Vera Stanhope is drawn into a suspicious death on Ternstone, a remote and inaccessible island off the coast of Northumberland, home only to numerous species of birds and the rangers who observe them. The last thing anyone expected to see was a body, cruelly washed up on the shore.
The body of a young man is discovered face down in a river by Thrunton Woods, bludgeoned to death. But with no ID on the body, tracing the victim's identity proves difficult for DCI Vera Stanhope and her team. Vera is forced to make headway with the only clues they have: a mourning ring worn around the young man's neck, needle marks on the body, and a drugs wrap with a distinctive stamp - 'Dark Angel'.
DCI Vera Stanhope investigates the murder of a promising journalism student, who falls to his death in suspicious circumstances. With no eyewitnesses and no immediate leads, Vera turns to friends and family to glean all she can about Jamie, and to discover who might have wanted him dead. Could his investigative journalism be responsible for making serious enemies?
When the body of 18-year-old Mia Hinkin is discovered buried on the moors, DCI Vera Stanhope is forced to delve into the life and the secrets of the victim. Vera has to deliver the terrible news of her death to her family. Mia had left home against their wishes to attend the Eastbury music festival. Vera must retrace the vulnerable young woman's footsteps from her isolated rural life and into a dark and tangled web of deceit to track down her killer.
