Join us at Camberley Library as we interview William Shaw on The Wild Swimmers, the latest in the critically acclaimed DS Alexandra Cupidi series.

The body of a local woman, Mimi Greene, is found washed up on the Folkestone shoreline. The community is left in disbelief as the confident swimmer seemingly chose to go out into the waters alone, in bad weather, without telling a soul about her plans… DS Alexandra Cupidi, recently back at work, must unravel the links between her, a slippery and mysterious online lothario and long-buried local secrets. She must also keep her old friend and young daughter safe as ripples from the investigation reach outwards. The waterways and life on the shore aren’t as idyllic as they seem in this atmospheric, expertly plotted, utterly satisfying read.
