The guilt that still haunts him resurfaces during a visit with his young family to the small coastal community he once called home.

When a body is discovered on the beach, long-held secrets threaten to emerge. A sunken wreck, a missing girl, and questions that have never washed away..."-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* The latest stunner from Jane Harper hinges on the same premise as her 2017 debut, The Dry, but, instead of the arid outback, readers will find themselves on the raging coast of Tasmania. Kieran Elliott, along with his partner and their infant daughter, returns to his family's home in Evelyn Bay and soon finds himself enveloped in memories of the devastating ramifications of a historic storm that ravaged the town 12 years earlier. Among the casualties was Kieran's brother, Finn, who died attempting to rescue Kieran after a foolhardy visit to caves on the shore that went underwater in a tremendous surge. A young girl Kieran knew also went missing during the storm. Only her backpack was ever found, floating offshore, a few days later. The locals still mark the dreadful date the storm hit, and many remain unable to leave the tragedy behind. Kieran has only been back one day when the body of a young waitress is found on the beach, and the trauma rekindles resentments from the past, which play out dangerously in social media. Harper's polished prose has earned her comparisons to Louise Penny. That connection is also on view here, as Harper expertly raises the reader's pulse throughout the narrative, insinuating what happened that day but only revealing the truth slowly as Kieran comes to see past and present in a new light.
