"Her husband's tragic death forces Ellen Richmond to cope with matters she'd never had to deal with. And things are even worse than she'd feared. Harry went sailing alone and his yacht mysteriously vanished. Could it have sunk by accident? His business was in bad shape: the police imply that he might have committed suicide. She has to keep such harmful speculation from the children, Katie and Josh. She has to ward off Harry's bossy and disapproving sister, who seems to blame her, and to cope with the attentions of his former partner, who fancies himself irresistible. But above all, she has to deflect the interest of a man who introduces himself at the funeral and claims to have known her husband from the Falklands campaign. Because now Ellen's learning Harry's secrets, secrets that may have led to his death. But only one person knows if it was accident, suicide or murder."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

display_description Ellen seeks a dangerous truth when her husband is lost at sea under suspicious circumstances in this psychological thriller from international bestselling author Clare Francis When MP and successful businessman Harry Richmond is seemingly lost at sea in his yacht, his wife, Ellen, slowly transforms from grieving widow to primary suspect. The handsome Richard Moreland, Harry's army colleague, is determined to solve the mystery of his friend's disappearance. When Richard uncovers clues pointing to the possibility of scandal, secrets, and even murder, Ellen insists her husband committed suicide. As she works stoically to protect her children from the emotional impact of their father's disappearance and its related politics, another revelation awaits-and it could break the case wide open. Rendered in stunning prose, this psychological thriller from international bestselling author Clare Francis is one of the yachtswoman's finest works. Never has her specialty knowledge of sailing, boats, and the Suffolk coast been so well represented in her fiction.
