It looks as if he threw himself from a lighthouse - but was it suicide, or something more sinister?
Detective Inspector Berenice Killick is used to dealing with minor complaints like parking tickets and lost property, so when she is offered the case she jumps at the chance.
She soon discovers that the dead man was Murdo Macguire, a physicist, and that he and his colleagues were carrying out top secret work on particle collisions.
When more of the scientists are found dead, in the same place and manner as Macguire, it looks like someone has a vendetta against the project.
But what were the scientists working on?
And will someone kill to find out - or to prevent the science being revealed?
As she delves deeper into the mystery, Berenice must fight to get her voice heard in a police department run by men - and she must learn to trust her instincts if she is to have any chance of solving the case.
What is it that the murderer is Dying to Know?
Berenice must find out before it is too late...
