This is a splendid thriller set in the exotic location of Kilwinnoch, Scotland. It’s quite intriguing and the story moves at a great speed. There’s never a dull moment. In fact, I kept chewing on my nails as I turned each page to find out what happened next. A fantastic book by TG Reid. Richard Jones, a geography teacher at Kilwinnoch Academy goes missing while he’s on a trip ( mainly for the photography). His body is discovered near Braeburn Falls ( also Blood Water Falls). DCI Duncan Bones leads the investigation with DI Walker, DS Mullens, DS Baxter with DC Harper and their chief Gallacher. Richard is considered as a hero by many who supported environmental cause and as a result, antagonized some businesses. The police is under tremendous pressure to solve the case. DCI Bones has problems of his own. He sees a ghostly figure after suffering from PTSD. He jumps into the investigation. DS Mullens learns from his former teacher, Miss Dawn Palmers that Richard had a fight with Brandon Kinross, his colleague and arch rival in the photography competition instigated by Oliver Morton a day before his disappearance. There are plenty of suspects, Brandon, Oliver and the Springsteen brothers, renowned for stealing rare birds and eggs , who showed up near the crime scene. The suspect is too Clever to leave behind any trail. He threatens DCI Bones and his teams by setting fire to Bones’ Apartment, then cutting the brakes of Bones’ car, almost leading to his death and attacking a prisoner .
