The honeymoon was over...and Jim and his English bride, Sarah, had come home to Kinness to settle down. But first there was to be one huge celebration for the newlyweds, with the whole island present. And before the party was over, there would be a shockingly unexpected death.
Somehow, in the dark of the night, Jim's young sister, Mary, slipped off Ellie's Head to the rocks below. But did Mary fall, or was she pushed?
George Palmer-Jones, retired birdwatcher and amateur detective, suspected the latter, but proving it would be difficult. Yet those with something to hide inevitably try to hide it, and George, helped by Sarah, began to piece together a tragic story he wished he had never heard.
