The Malice of Waves Paperback
Part of the The Sea Detective series
Investigator Cal McGill uses his knowledge of tides, winds and currents to solve mysteries no-one else can. Five years ago, fourteen-year-old Max Wheeler disappeared from a remote Scottish island.
None of the six police and private investigations since have shed any light on what happened. Unable to let go, Max's family call in Cal McGill - known as 'The Sea Detective' - hoping he'll force the sea to give up its secrets.
Yet Cal finds he is an outsider to a broken family, and an unwelcome stranger in a village which has endured years of suspicion. Cal knows that a violent storm is approaching. But what he doesn't know is that when it cuts off the island, a killer will see their chance...*** Praise for The Sea Detective mysteries: 'The Malice of Waves is the first novel literally to give me nightmares ...for a crime novel that's surely a mark of distinction' (Herald) 'Stewing pot of intrigue and mystery...another super read' (Lovereading.co.uk on The Malice of Waves) 'Really good stuff, full of atmosphere, and accomplished in both prose and plot' (Morning Star on The Malice of Waves) 'Raises the bar for Scottish crime fiction ...elegantly written and compelling' (Scotsman on The Sea Detective) 'Promises to be a fine series of detective novels' (Sunday Times Crime Book of the Month, The Sea Detective) 'This always entertaining and gripping mystery' (Herald on The Woman Who Walked Into The Sea) 'Simply intoxicating' (Library Review, USA, on The Woman Who Walked Into The Sea)
