DEATH IN THE COVE
Recently promoted to Inspector at Scotland Yard, the former Merchant Navy seaman and German prisoner-of-war is despatched to the Island of Portland in Dorset to solve an unusual and baffling case. The body of a man dressed in a pinstriped suit has been discovered in an isolated cove on the island by war photographer, Eva Paisley. Ryga is keen to prove his worth on his first solo investigation outside of London. Ignoring the warnings of the local police inspector and the Dorset Chief Constable that his trust in Eva Paisley is misjudged, Ryga quickly realises that her observations could provide the breakthrough he needs in a complex murder investigation and the answer to the haunting circumstances that have sent the man in the pinstriped suit to his death.
