Four dead.
One clinging to life.
Are they tragic accidents or is someone out to kill?

Detective Dove Milson is called out to a gruesome scene under the pier: four bodies floating in a flooded escape room. What really happened after midnight in room 6?

Then Dove discovers one of the dead was a person of interest in a cold case involving Olympian in-the-making Mickey Delaney. She was left for dead in an abandoned quarry and has been in a coma for five years.

What’s the connection between these cases, and do they have anything to do with the attacks on the beach?

One thing is clear.

Dove’s in a dangerous game of cat and mouse, and only one of them will escape with their life.


D.E. White recently spent some time with The Big Thrill discussing her latest thriller, THE ABBERLEY BEACH MURDERS:

What do you hope readers will take away from this book?

I hope they will have enjoyed the third Detective Dove Milson as much as they did the first two books in the series.

What attracts you to this book’s genre?

I love exploring how the mind works, and how everything is not simply a case of right or wrong.

No spoilers, but what can you tell us about your book that we won’t find in the jacket copy or the PR material?

The idea for the first chapter came while I was swimming at night on a deserted beach.
