A nameless victim, an elusive killer, and a puzzling case for a detective in a new role
When a body washes up on Crosby Beach in Liverpool Bay, detectives quickly declare foul play. Yet they will struggle to establish the identity of the victim, let alone the killer.
Leading the inquiry on his first murder case, DI Jordan Carr must marshal a somewhat motley team to build a picture of what happened one grim day on the Mersey. Like footprints in the sand, in time the clues will disappear.
With a victim who has clearly concealed her own identity, it will require a journey into Liverpool’s underworld to shake loose the facts.
But once they have their man, the police still need to know why the woman was killed. And answering that question will be DI Carr’s biggest challenge.
BODY ON THE SHORE is the first book in a new mystery series by Diane Dickson. Look out for the second book, BODY BY THE DOCKS, also available FREE with Kindle Unlimited and in paperback. Diane is the author of many crime fiction titles, including the bestselling DI Tanya Miller series set in the Midlands and Oxfordshire.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
It was quite simply the figures on Crosby Beach in Antony Gormley's installation, 'Another Place'. I have been there a few times and feel that they are quite haunting, especially when you take into account that they will be left to decay and rot away (probably).
