Months after the killer of the Hunt has been locked up, a new string of deaths are pulsating through Bottle Island. This time, the police are quick to insist on simple causes: suicide, accident, unexplained heart attack. Anything except murder. But Luca Fern is seeing a pattern. The winter break has arrived and boatloads of tourists are settling on the island, creating a stream of faces that come and go. When a previous victim of the Hunt returns to Altswood and unveils a revelation, it is clear that the case has not been solved. Bottle Island has more secrets than truths, and Luca refuses to believe her paranoia has finally won over her. The Hunt has come to an end, but the killings have not.
