Gently and Bacchus investigate a young woman's murder after her body is washed up on the beach near the holiday camp where she worked. The once-thriving business is clearly in trouble, with fewer and fewer families visiting each summer. The detectives delve into this world of fame seekers and sex maniacs, and discover the dark underbelly of a permissive society as the traditional family dynamics of the past begin to crumble.
