Annie Young’s forte is tech writing and historical research. But with disconcerting frequency as she travels for projects around the world‚ she finds herself in the middle of murder investigations.
American-born Annie thinks she’s landed an easy assignment translating a book about the small northern Germany island of Insel Poel and some museum information. Then she stumbles upon the bodies of two young Asian women‚ washed ashore from who knows where. Her visit to the quaint island is compounded by a disturbing case of a teenage girl being abused by her new stepfather.
Despite the protestations of her fiancé‚ a police chief in southern France‚ Annie gets steadily more involved.
Woven through the mystery are the stories of a WWII concentration camp survivor‚ an RAF pilot and a vicar’s daughter‚ each with a unique historical connection to the beach at Insel Poel.
When Annie gets too close to the truth behind the murders‚ she becomes the next target.
