One cold, wet evening in an otherwise unusually dry April, a man falls from the fifth floor window of a hotel in Hythe.
Did he jump or was he pushed?
Detective Chief Superintendent Fran Harman is already struggling to juggle her work and private life. She is having difficulties finding a company willing to restore her and her boyfriend's new home and has to put Mark up in her own cottage whilst the work is completed.
Why did this man jump from a hotel balcony when he had a perfectly good balcony at home?
A glitch with the water system and her boyfriend's troublesome daughter add more problems to Fran's lot. Can she find the time to discover what it is that appears not quite right about Alec Minton's death?
