The fourth murky murder in the Campbell and Carter Mysteries
As Christmas approaches in the sleepy English village of Weston Saint Ambrose, the rains bring the wettest winter on record and the farmer’s fields are left under several feet of water. The water washes up all manner of things, including a dead body, dredged up from its watery grave.
Snagging on the jetty of Isolde Evans, the reclusive writer is shocked to recognise the victim. And she’s not the only one. When Inspector Jess Campbell investigates, she recognises the body of Courtney Higson, a local barmaid with a doting, ex-con father. Terry is set on finding his daughter’s killer, and Jess must get to the bottom of this quickly, before he takes the law into his own hands…
Dead in the Water is perfect for fans of T E Kinsey, Ann Cleeves and the Midsomer Murders.

Ann Granger was born in Portsmouth where she was a pupil at the then Northern Grammar School for Girls and went from there to London University where she achieved a BA in Modern Languages (French with German). After a period spent first teaching English in France and then working in the Visa Section of Britiish Embassies abroad she married a fellow civil servant and they lived first in Zambia, then in Germany, before returning to the UK. When at school Ann had aspirations to become a veterinary surgeon, but was informed by the headmistress of the day that she would almost certainly find herself in a ‘small animals practice’. Possibly this wasn’t quite right, but faced, she thought, with a lifetime spent with gerbils and budgies (delightful those these creatures may be!) Ann turned her ambitiion in the direction of becoming an author. Books were a passion then and have remained a passion ever since.
