Elise King never expected to live somewhere like Ebbing. Her career as a successful, ambitious detective meant everything to her. But then illness left her unsure if she'd ever return to work and in need of some rest and recuperation. So, here she is. At first glance, Ebbing seems a small, sleepy seaside town. But Elise soon realises that tensions are running high - the weekenders in their fancy clothes, renovating old bungalows into luxury homes, and the locals resentful of the changes. A town, divided. And while Elise watches and wonders what's really going on behind closed doors, Dee Eastwood, her cleaner, often knows. She's an invisible presence in many of the houses in town but she sees and hears everything. Tensions in the town reach boiling point when two teenagers end up in hospital and a local man vanishes without trace.

This was a good read but think her previous books (The Widow, The Child & The Suspect) were GREAT reads so a little disappointed with this one.
