This third installment of the Vera Stanhope series wasn't as great as the previous entries.  Still very good but not great.  I really enjoyed getting more background on the main character, Vera.  She's such an unusually real character.  I'm anxious to read more!

From the publisher:
On a hot summer on the Northumberland coast, Julie Armstrong arrives home from a night out to find her son murdered. Luke has been strangled, laid out in a bath of water and covered with wild flowers.

This stylized murder scene has Inspector Vera Stanhope and her team intrigued. But now, Vera must work quickly to find this killer who is making art out of death. As local residents are forced to share their private lives, sinister secrets are slowly unearthed.

And all the while the killer remains in their midst, waiting for an opportunity to prepare another beautiful, watery grave…
