The affluent seaside resort of Smalting is unaccustomed to crime. So when human remains are found beneath the floorboards of one of its beach huts, the community is awash with suspicion and fear. Amateur sleuths Carole Seddon and best friend Jude are drawn into the mystery, and their suspicion quickly falls on attractive Philly Rose, a young Londoner newly arrived in the area, whose boyfriend has recently vanished in mysterious circumstances. Meanwhile, Kelvin Southwest, self-appointed ladies man and caretaker of Smaltings beach huts, seems to be hiding a dark secret beneath his smooth exterior, while Reginald Flowers, pompous President of the Smalting Beach Hut Association, becomes increasingly defensive about his own history. When the bones under the beach hut are identified, the ghosts of the past are painfully reawakened, and long-hidden secrets begin to surface...."--Publisher.

Gulliver, Carole's dog, plays a small but amusing part in the beach adventures.

So what were the cops doing while she was solving the mystery? Some actions just didn't make sense. It's a good enough read if you don't want too much suspense, murder and mayhem.

Yeah! I loved it; it's not going to win a literary award, but the characters are very real, the plot's nicely involved without ever being difficult to follow, the beach-setting is nice to visit. You actually could read it on the beach, if you can't decide between the silly book and the big serious serial-killer thing.

Plenty of action. Plenty of people guilty of something. The child porn is not necessary. I can only guess that the author had so many suspects that he ran out of "guilts" to assign them, so he stuck this in to cover three of the suspects.
