Catering their first joint event, a sixteenth birthday party at the local rowing club, Lilly and Abigail let their creative juices flow, determined to make it the talk of the town.
But the celebration soon becomes notorious for all the wrong reasons when a lifeless body is washed up on the shore of the lake.
Shock waves go through the crowd, for not only was the victim a prominent member of the club, but a former Olympic swimming champion.
As a crucial witness, Detective Phillips asks Lilly to help and introduces her to the dark underbelly of Plumpton Mallet. One she had no idea existed.
But as the investigation picks up speed, they both realise there’s another life in danger and it becomes a race against time to stop a second death.
