Tickets £2, available from Roose or Barrow Library Tel: 01229 811674 or 01229 407373 to book. When a body is pulled from the deepest lake in England, the West Cumbria police are faced with links to a thirty-year-old case that still haunts DCI Sam Tognarelli. Determined to right old wrongs, he forgets about retirement and takes charge of the enquiry. DCI Anna Penrose, a promising CID officer, is tired of the in-fighting and sexism that undermine her at work. Distracted by a new relationship, she is blind to the toxic legacy of abuse and manipulation underlying the inquiry until it is almost too late.
