It's been 10 years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne's case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched. The decade-old investigation focused on Nic; her brother, Daniel; her boyfriend, Tyler; and Corinne's boyfriend, Jackson. Since then only Nic has left Cooley Ridge.

Someone recommended this book to me. I'm glad I can't remember who, because I would have to remove them from my list of friends. This is a story about bad and stupid people making bad and stupid decisions. It asks the reader to excuse foolish and ultimate immoral behavior. It is told using a literary device (telling part of the story sort of in reverse) that doesn't work and performed in a way that all the voices are female despite an effort to have the male characters sound different. I listened to the whole performance because I wanted to give the author a chance to redeem this work, but it didn't happen. In the end, I'm sorry I spent the time.

Living again of the Isle of Lewis, the ex-detective inspector Fin McLeod is working as a security officer for a local landowner. While investigating illegal activity on the estate, Fin encounters elusive poacher and former childhood friend Whistler Macaskill. But while Fin catches up with Whistler, the two witness a freak natural phenomenon - a "bog burst" - that spontaneously drains a loch of its water, revealing a mud-encased light aircraft with a sickeningly familiar moniker on its side.

well written, appropriate length and I love the setting
It was worth finding the first volume in this series (which is not available on Audible except in German for some reason) and read all three in order.
