Set on the Moray coast in Scotland, Sea of Bones is a tense, upmarket thriller.
Juliet is used to wielding power and influence in her line of work, but when her beloved niece dies, she finds herself powerless in the face of her grief and has doubts over the coroner’s report of suicide. She travels back to her family’s remote coastal home where Beth was found. As Juliet delves deeper into the investigation, her personal and professional lives collide and she unwittingly finds herself pitted against dangerous opposition who seem intent on silencing her. In order to expose the truth behind her niece's death, Juliet must face the fact that nobody in her life is who she previously thought them to be – including herself.
Gripping, beautifully written and hauntingly atmospheric, Sea of Bones has a distinctive sense of place and atmosphere, a compelling, intelligent, emotionally complex female lead and a subtle feminist undertone.
