Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, a long-awaited seaside vacation becomes a busman's holiday when a local Lothario turns up murdered...but hardly mourned...

Ah, summer! Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher, three months pregnant and fit as a fiddle, has been anticipating a quiet getaway with her husband and stepdaughter in the coastal town of Westcombe. But if death won't take a holiday, neither will the Fletchers. And the murder of town Casanova George Enderby lands Alec in charge of the investigation and Daisy stubbornly by his side. It's hard to find someone who wouldn't have wanted Enderby dead. The married pub owner's scandalous seductions had earned him the enmity of every jilted lover and cuckolded husband in town -- not to mention the resentment of his long-suffering wife. But for someone, the insult cut deep enough to kill. Now, as Daisy delves beneath the gossip and into a small town's darkest secrets, the idyllic seaside cliffs, beautiful beach, and quaint village pub of Westcombe seem nothing more than a sinister backdrop for a cold-blooded killer...one who may be closer than she thinks...
