WHAT EVERY BODY IS SAYING
After a disastrous encounter with a serial killer, Detective Inspector Tregunna is still struggling to come to terms with the aftermath of his life-changing surgery and an uncertain future. There is only one thing he knows for certain: he has to keep working otherwise he will be overwhelmed by self-pity and depression.
Then he is called out to investigate the disappearance of schoolgirl Leanne. Soon he finds out that another girl is missing, but why do her parents insist that everything is alright?
When a hand is found on the muddy bank of the river Camel near Padstow, an unsolved case of a shoe with a foot still in it pops up in the investigation and it soon becomes clear that the body parts belong to the same person.
As the dead person’s life begins to unfold, Tregunna uncovers a dark world of secrets, lies and revenge, and the certainty that a killer is still out there, ready to strike again ….
COVER THE LIES
Two women enjoy a night out in Newquay. Only one of them comes home … A man who shares the care of his demented father with his sister, doesn’t come home from an early morning meeting. As the investigating team focus on the disappearance of one of the suspects, Tregunna approaches both murder cases from a totally different point of view. Notoriously stubborn and uncooperative, he works in his own unorthodox way when a picture of a young girl leads him to someone with a secret so incredible that even he can’t believe it.
Two decades ago, a girl scrambled out of a car and ran into the woods…When Cornish DI Andy Tregunna finds the body of a local politician, it seems to be a straightforward case of suicide.
Then a brutal killing takes place on the moor. Coincidence, or are the two cases related?
As Tregunna and Penrose delve deeper into the lives of the suspects, they come closer to a killer who will do anything to keep the secrets hidden in the depths.
