About the Book:
Cameo characters people the pages of this gentle mystery, set in the imaginary town of Potterton and centered around its marina. Deaths, kidnapping, rescues and a mild romance weave in and out of the story. At the centre is Kevin, a semi-recluse boatman, whose peaceful evening is rudely interrupted when a female neighbour calls for his assistance in rescuing a drowning child. The child, Sophie, survives her wetting but brings with her a plethora of unanswered conundrums. During their efforts to solve the mysteries she presents, a lasting friendship is formed, an abusive step-father is halted in his attempt to deceive the authorities and a grieving woman is given a second chance.

Excerpt from "A Single Rook":
"He supposed he ought to feel something; horror, sorrow, shock – anything really. But truth to tell he was numb from head to toe; he didn't feel anything other than a slight sense of the unreal. He was dreaming, sleepwalking, he would wake up soon and all would be normal. He couldn't make himself go back into the kitchen so he took himself down the road to the local pub where a beer would suffice in place of the missed coffee."
