The grave of a Cornish poet reveals a centuries-old mystery and leads Detective Inspector Felse on a dangerous trail of secrets and crime.
While on a seaside vacation in Cornwall with his son, Dominic, Detective Inspector George Felse can’t help but investigate a dark mystery of smuggling, missing bodies, and murder.

But when local scholar Simon Towne arranges to open Treverra’s grave in search of his long-lost literary legacy, the tomb yields two dead bodies . . . and neither one is the body of Jan Treverra. In this derelict seashore graveyard, Felse uncovers a trail of violence in Maymouth’s history that casts shadows centuries long. . . .
