By John Burke
The path for the truth can be treacherous…

On the recommendation of a co-worker, Ellen visits a grand guest house in Wales, only to find it has shut its gates at the height of the season.
If that wasn’t unusual enough, a geologist is then found dead in a boat belonging to Commander David Parr – the owner of the establishment.
Soon it becomes apparent that something is very wrong as a conspiracy begins to unfold.
Ellen finds herself swept along in a dangerous adventure as she attempts to discover who is responsible and what has happened…but she is not alone in her desire for the truth…
