The body of a homeless man is pulled from the Regent’s Canal, north London.  Patrick Kingdom QC, a man who has it all: a successful career and a loving wife and family, is caught up in the police enquiry, along with his lover, the famous actress Gracia Peel, and his best friend, High Court judge, Sir Graham Andrew. Lies are told and truths are concealed. Tragedy strikes and all three are forced to confront the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth and decide how much of it to tell.

REVIEWS
“What Lies Beneath the Surface is an absolute gem of a book. At first glance it appears to be a crime or whodunit novel, But it is so much more. It explores loyalty and friendship within families, with friends and colleagues, or lovers. It looks at the issue of homelessness, and it considers the ethics of truth. It is a mark of the writer’s skill that every single character is fully rounded and portrayed with a certain affection and empathy, from high court judges and homeless people to detective constables and high profile actors. Ginny Davis has personal experience of the backstage of courtrooms through her work as a barrister. She is also a highly successful playwright and performer. This unusual combination of backgrounds, added to meticulous location research, makes for a novel that is totally convincing and authentic. Although it deals with some uneasy issues, it is ultimately a gripping and heart-warming read”.  – Delyth Jenkins, author of That Would Be Telyn.

“Quite a page-turner.” Christopher Lamb

“The plot is genius – lots of interesting intertwining of life and its absurdity and how different personality types bounce off each other causing all sorts of tweaks and nicks of pain and pleasure -. Philippa Dearsley
