Fifty years ago, a group of teenagers spent a weekend on Holy Island, forging a bond that has lasted a lifetime. When one of them is hanged, Vera is called in. With the tide rising, secrets long-hidden are finding their way to the surface, and Vera and the team may find themselves in more danger than they could have believed possible…
