When a body is found floating in the sea off Portsmouth harbour, Detective Inspector Horton initially judges it to be an accidental death. Soon though he discovers he’s got it very wrong.
Accused of being incompetent by his boss, and with the head of the Major Crime Team coming down heavily on him, Horton wonders if he’s allowed his on-going investigation into the disappearance of his mother to cloud his judgement.
With no clear motive for the murder, Horton is sucked into a baffling investigation that he is determined to resolve despite the odds. Not only does he need to find a brutal killer, but Horton now has to prove to himself, and others, that he is still up to the job…

It would have been better if there were fewer characters- There were so many characters that it was difficult to feel for more than the primary character, Andy Horton.
The story was difficult to follow because there was a lot of extra information. The story was similar to a stream of consciousness- too much information that distracted from the story.
The characters all sounded very similar. I find it difficult to follow a narration when there are minimal differences in the speaking patterns and voices between the characters.
