    I read The Death Of The Elver Man a few years ago and loved it so I was interested to see where Ms Finch is taking her characters in The Drowners Alex has changed jobs within the probation service but a bout of meningitis delays her start While she is recovering there are all sorts of shenanigans going on in the Levels A man is murdered by drowning, a new drug is making inroads, a criminal gang is planning to take advantage of the void left by Derek Johns, villain of the previous novel and so I read The Death Of The Elver Man a few years ago and loved it so I was interested to see where Ms Finch is taking her characters in The Drowners Alex has changed jobs within the probation service but a bout of meningitis delays her start While she is recovering there are all sorts of shenanigans going on in the Levels A man is murdered by drowning, a new drug is making inroads, a criminal gang is planning to take advantage of the void left by Derek Johns, villain of the previous novel and someone is messing with the records at the probation office.The Drowners has quite a complicated and detailed plot but it is also very good on characterisation, location and era 1987 Personally, while I enjoyed the detail I often felt it distracted me from the main plot and didn t always hold my attention
