This was an island nation cross-hatched by rivers, canals, lakes, and estuaries. Lives were often endangered or lost by those who underestimated the sea. The Inspector glanced toward shore to see if the coroner’s van had arrived. He wasn’t surprised to find residents hovering beside the parked police van where men pulled out a stretcher to transport the victim. The Royal Nationals rescued people every day. By now, everyone should be used to the sight of their lifeboats coming to shore. Yet no one could adjust to the fearful doubt that filled their hearts and minds whenever a lifeboat appeared. They wondered if it was a spouse, a child, or a neighbor, not knowing if they survived or if they were far away beyond the caress of the endless surf.
