The Seal King Murders, Hardback Book

The Seal King Murders Hardback

Part of the Inspector Faro series


The year is 1861 and Constable Faro is heading back to Orkney to enjoy some home comforts, armed with a private investigation into the death of an ex-colleague's relative, champion swimmer Dave Claydon, downed in mysterious circumstances.

Was this an accident or a sinister connection with missing artefacts recovered from the Armada galleon sunk off Spanish Cove?

At Scarthbreck his mother is determined to find him a wife and this Lammastide the legend of the seal king's annual claim of a human bride becomes reality.

Faro's holiday and his original secret mission turn into a nightmare.

With himself as the prime suspect in the girl's disappearance, he is in deadly danger, his life threatened by circumstances beyond his control.
