There's no body and there's no evidence. But Fin is convinced it was murder. A fast-paced and thrilling crime tale set by the beach.

Synopsis

While trying to enjoy his summer, Finn finds himself in the middle of a murder scene when balancing stones under the cliffs. Already dealing with an ill mother and a turbulent uncle, Finn suddenly has a lot more on his plate. Now it is his duty to find out exactly what went on down at his favourite part of the beach...before the worst happens.

Reviews
