Temple Regis, 1959: Devon's prettiest seaside resort is thrown into turmoil by the discovery of a body abandoned in the lighthouse. It's only weeks since another body was found in the library - and for the Riviera Express's ace reporter-turned-sleuth Judy Dimont, there's an added complication.
Her friend Geraldine Phipps is begging her to re-investigate a mysterious death from many years before. What's more, Judy's position as chief reporter is under threat when her editor takes on hot-shot journalist David Renishaw, whose work is just too good to be true. Life is busier than ever for Devon's most famous detective.
Can Judy solve the two mysteries - and protect her position as Temple Regis's best reporter - before the murderer strikes again?
