An entrepreneur’s murder delivers no shortage of suspects, and the discovery of a teenager’s body floating near a salmon farm reveals a tangled web of deceit between two families. The murder of a cleaner whose death occurred several hours after the killer blow landed sends Vera on an intriguing trail, and it soon becomes clear that not all is as it seems when a wealthy betting shop tycoon is killed during a home invasion. Set against the breathtaking landscapes of Northumberland, this top-rating drama is inspired by the bestselling novels and characters created by acclaimed author Ann Cleeves.
