Set against Scotland’s hauntingly beautiful landscapes, this tense thriller follows Annie Redford (Laura Fraser, Breaking Bad, The Missing), a small-town detective thrown into her first murder case. When a man is found dead at the bottom of a cliff, DCI Lauren Quigley (Siobhan Finneran, Downton Abbey, Happy Valley) arrives to lead the inquiry, along with forensic psychologist Blake Albrighton (Don Gilet, EastEnders). The local police clash with these outsiders, but when more bodies turn up, the team theorizes that a serial killer is stalking the shores of Loch Ness.
As the case swells to engulf the whole town, Annie becomes immersed in the investigation, unintentionally pushing away her husband (Gray O’Brien, Coronation Street) and teenage daughter (Shona McHugh). With grief, terror, and suspicion shattering her community, Annie strives to expose the monster hiding in plain sight.
Tightly plotted and suspenseful, this twist-filled mystery will “keep [you] hooked” (The Washington Post).
