'Killing women is mad, even if he is family.' Spencer Calbeck returns to Choke Bay, the Yorkshire coastal village where his father killed two women and committed suicide. He arrives for the engagement party of Lauren to Ron. Lauren is a nurse, and Ron works at the Coast Guard Station. Lauren is the girl that Spencer loves. Choke Bay is an almost deserted village, dominated by empty cottages rented by tourists in the summer. Unable to decide his future Spencer has to face the past and his memories. He meets not just those who survived but the others, those who were slain and who, like Spencer, cannot forget the violence of the past.
