A girl goes missing. Dixon and Winter are on holiday in the lakes so the investigation proceeds without them. Then another girl goes missing. So both are called back especially when we find out the second girl is the grand daughter of Dr Boland their friend and forensic scientist. Dixon brings his very sharp brain to work and sees problems with the way the investigation is going.
There is plenty of action as the true story starts to be revealed and suspects need to be tracked down. Leading to a fairly exciting finish. Well a climax followed by further investigations and unexpected outcome.
The romance between Dixon and Winter is getting close to the M word. Jane's lost sister turns up and does provide an insight so a lot of interesting sub plots. Readers who think like Dixon and look at people's behaviour might spot a few clues early on but don't worry just read the book.
There is an unusual prologue which describes an incident on the canal lock some time I the past. It doesn't lead directly into the story. Damien explains the link in his acknowledgement at the end.
All in all a very exciting and entertaining story and leaves me looking forward to his next effort.
Please keep going and keeping me enthralled.
Have passed it on to others to read.
The main characters become like friends at the end of book! We become very involved with each of them...so bring on book 9 please!!

Sorry, but the pressure is on: I hope Damien Boyd has his next book on the boil.
The cast of regular characters is quite large, but they all have a part to play supporting Nick Dixon in his regular role as a Somerset based Detective Inspector.
The series is growing rapidly (Thankfully) along with its characters, and although each book stands on its own the sequential nature of the series makes reading them in order the best way to enjoy them all.
Possibly my favourite in the series; a great page-turner, and highly recommended.
