It's quiet, too quiet, and Inverness is almost a crime-free city. Of course it cannot last and DI Avalon tries his best to keep his team on full alert for when the sky eventually falls.
When his colleague DS Ross follows his instincts during a routine check on a reported suicide, he finds too many inconsistencies. Avalon agrees and mobilises most of the team onto the investigation. With a suicide note and no body, it becomes clear that there is a deeply nefarious undercurrent about to burst forth.
Avalon is back in the fourth book in the series. Set in the Highlands of Scotland, this contemporary tale sets Avalon on the trail of a mysterious cult, prominent figures in society and high-ranking members of Police Scotland
