Dead Man's Cove

'What I want,' Laura declared is to have a life packed with excitement like some of the characters in my books.' And Laura Marlin's favourite character is ace-detective Matt Walker. When she is sent to live with an uncle in St Ives, Cornwall, she's convinced that a life of adventure is hers at last. But everywhere she turns she's confronted with mysteries. Nothing is what it seems.

Is Tariq, the shopkeeper's silent son, a friend or an enemy? Why does her uncle seem so intent on erasing his own past? And why is everyone so afraid of Dead Man's Cove?

When Laura finds a message in a bottle, she embarks on a deadly quest, one that will test her detective skills to the limit and set her on a collision course with a gang of criminal masterminds who will stop at nothing to get their own way.
