A People Magazine Best Book of Fall 2019

In North Devon, where two rivers converge and run into the sea, Detective Matthew Venn stands outside the church as his estranged fathers funeral takes place. On the day Matthew left the strict evangelical community he grew up in, he lost his family, too.

Now, as he turns and walks away again, he receives a call from one of his team. A body has been found on the beach nearby: a man with a tattoo of an albatross on his neck, stabbed to death.

The case calls Matthew back to the people and places of his past, as deadly secrets hidden at their hearts are revealed, and his new life is forced into a collision course with the world he thought hed left behind.

Narrator very difficult for hearing impaired. I have moderate impairment . I had to listen on my fire TV with my hearing aids in and TV
volume at 99. Also slowed talk to 70 per cent. Most book don’t requiremor than 60 TV volume and no change in speed. Almost returned the book.
