As Cal arrives, a violent storm approaches, threatening to completely cut off the island, with a possible murderer at large . . . ________'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'Really good stuff, full of atmosphere, and accomplished in both prose and plot' Morning StarPraise for Mark Douglas-Home:'A first-class mystery - perplexing and at times disturbing' i'Intelligence, imagination and lucid writing' The Times'I'm completely addicted to this series' Dermot O'Leary
