First edition. Signed by the author. As new, unread copy in dust jacket. It's the coldest winter in Hull for years. When McAvoy is told by a concerned stranger that an elderly woman hasn't been seen for a few days, he goes to check on her. He finds her in the bath, encased in ice: the heating off; the windows open; the whole house frozen over. It could be a grisly accident, but McAvoy thinks differently. As he starts to uncover the victim's story and her connections to a lost fishing trawler, his boss is in Iceland investigating a mysterious death. Hull and Iceland have traditionally been united by fishing, but in this case, they are linked by a secret concealed for half a century, and a series of brutal killings that have never been connected. Until now...when the secrets of the dead have returned to prey on the living.
