Und dennoch ist der ersten Vermutung, dass der Täter aus eben diesem Kreise stammt, nichts entgegenzusetzen. But with the tide rising, secrets long-hidden are finding their way to the surface, and Vera and the team may find themselves in more danger than they could have believed possible . In present day, the friends are getting rather old and one of them is murdered at their weekend gathering.

I tried to slow down my reading because who knows when or if there will be another Vera book but I couldn't control myself. Another murder occurs soon afterward, and Vera suspects the deaths - possibly including Isobel's demise 45 years ago - are connected.she’s so unconventional, and unaffected by what others may think of her, but she’s an excellent detective, she’s demanding when it comes to her murder squad team, but they are only too eager give her their best efforts, and please her. Vera's tenacity and determination to solve the two present murders and expose events 50 years earlier have led herself and her two detectives into mortal danger. A group of local sixth formers and their trendy young teacher first visited the island 50 years ago.

Vera and her team start to investigate and try to figure out what each one of the friend's group is hiding and who has the strongest motive! The mystery was also a little sub-par this time around in my opinion, and the ending was heartbreaking. And, as is usual in these books, the conclusion of the case brings its own poignancy and heartache to the investigative team.Overweight, disheveled, dowdy Vera resembles a bag lady and is mistaken for a cleaning lady in this story.

But what secrets was he about to reveal that would raise the ire in someone so much that murder was the solution?But with the tide rising, secrets long-hidden are finding their way to the surface, and Vera and the team may find themselves in more danger than they could have believed possible. For those who both read the books and watch the television series, it must be said that it’s a pleasure to still have Joe Ashworth as Vera’s second in the books—“her surrogate son, and her conscience. The rising and waning tides impose a parenthetical relationship upon both residents and the dwindling swell of tourists to the historic Holy Island of Lindisfarne in October. Vera, with the help of her team, must painstakingly dissect their lives, looking for the truth of what has really happened.
