After a lobster fisherman discovers a dead body in Scotland's Firth of Forth, DCI Karen Pirie is called in to make her sixth investigation (following Broken Ground). She quickly enters a complicated web involving a long-ago disappearance, art forgery, and secret identities, all connected to a painter with a gift for forgery. Meanwhile, a skeleton is found in a suburban garage, and Karen has a full plate—especially with the man who killed the love of her life being released from prison, reopening old wounds just as she was getting back on her feet.
