He found the body on the forty-third day of his walk . . .

Devastated by the senseless murder of his wife, Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley retreated to Cornwall, where he has spent six solitary weeks hiking the bleak and rugged coastline. But no matter how far he walks, the painful memories do not diminish.

Then, at the base of a cliff near a town better known for its surfing than its intrigue, Lynley discovers the body of a young man who has fallen to his death. First a witness, then a suspect when the hand of a killer is revealed, Lynley remains, above all, a policeman willing to aid the gruff head of an understaffed local constabulary in her investigation. But the secrets in this community run dark and deep—and Lynley must somehow find a way to let go of the past long enough to solve a most devious and dreadful crime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A revolting work of art. Tampa is phenomenally written and on the same level of disturbia such as another great novel like The Lovely Bones. It took me a while to fully immerse into the book as almost every passage is disturbing in its blatant candor. It's the first book to keep me raising eyebrows even in solitude as my eyes scanned over sentences I couldn't believe were formed into a book. Its shocking frankness and rare topic married with nimble and witty writing kept me on my toes, hunched over in anxiety and disgust until the very last page. The author did a marvellous job of tapping of channeling such a monstrous character in a humorous way, but also an eye-opening reality of the world we live in - which is that people will almost overlook anything if it's committed but someone of unusual physical appeal. Loved this read and can't wait to check out her hopeful less morbid books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brave, exciting and haunting This book isn't like anything I've ever read. Written in first person, you meet Celeste, she is beautiful, smart, bitchy and has an overwhelming desire for young boys... also, she is a teacher. This was written so well, she didn't miss a step in achieving a haunting story that will have you one moment thinking about how horrifying what going on is and then the next moment you are hoping that she doesn't get caught. This was a brave undertaking, but Alissa Nutting did a great job - I would definitely recommend this book.
