Danny Latimer heads out early in the morning on his skateboard to pick up the newspapers for his route. Later in the day Beth, his mother goes to his school and she discovers Danny hasn’t been to school. She tries his cell phone and also calls her husband Mark. She starts home but there is a huge backup on the road. Someone tells her that a boy’s body has been found on the beach. Beth starts running and her worst fears are confirmed when she learns the body is Danny. This crime starts a huge investigation that uncovers many secrets in the community.
If you think you can figure out who is the killer, you will have a tough time!! This is excellent and you are kept guessing the entire 7 out of 8 episodes. The head investigator has a past history of a failed case settlement and he also has health issues. In the beginning, it doesn’t help that his partner Ellie Miller expected to get this job after she returned from a three-week holiday. 5* (I really loved this series)
