Poppy Gee, Bay of Fires: A Novel
Sarah Avery’s reckless behavior has cost her a job, her boyfriend, and the independence she desperately craves. Reluctantly home for the holidays in the tiny seaside town where her parents live, the quiet retreat she craves ends with her discovery of the body of a young female backpacker, washed up on the shore. A year earlier, another woman went missing and hasn’t been seen since: is there a killer among them?
Journalist Hall Flynn arrives to investigate the murder, which has set the locals reeling. Haunted by demons of his own and yearning for a fresh start, Hall will do whatever it takes to break the story-and Sarah will do whatever it takes to keep her own secrets safe.
