When Rebecca Meredith doesn’t come home one night, friends and family set out on a frantic search for the missing superintendent and long time Olympic contending rower. The investigation, headed by Duncan Kincaid, unfolds when Rebecca’s lifeless body is found floating along the bank of the Thames, a dingy river so many rowers in the area have called home.

Rebecca’s death is at first suspected to be an accident, but Kincaid is not convinced of her incompetency. Diving into Rebecca’s world Duncan finds pain, sorrow and a secret so deep even Kincaid himself is taken aback. Who killed Rebecca Meredith? Could it be the secret lover? The ex husband? Or the nameless man that changed Rebecca’s life forever?

Duncan, with the help of his wife Gemma, uncovers a sad and threatened woman consumed with pain and rage. As each secret is unraveled another crime is committed, urging a series of unlikely suspects into the limelight. Will Duncan solve this murderous conundrum before it claims the life of everyone he holds dear?

No Mark Upon Her is both complex and compelling. The twists and turns grab your attention, urging you to fall in love and identify with each and every character. The unexpected secrets push you deeper and deeper into the dark murky waters of the Thames. A definite must read for mystery and crime enthusiasts alike.
