Time & Tide : A Hew Cullan Mystery, Paperback Book
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


1582, St Andrews. In the swell of a storm, a battered ship is wrecked in St Andrews harbour.

Aboard is a young Flemish sailor - the only survivor.

The cargo of the ship appears a welcome windfall but it soon brings devastation to the town as petty squabbling turns to hysteria and tragedy.

Hew traces the ship to its source in Ghent, where he uncovers a strange secret.

Unwilling to allow the law to take its course, he returns once more to the role of advocate and finds his deepest principles being tested to the core.

Review by

Thought I'd reviewed this! Excellent as ever - love the hero and his best friend and sister, and I find the setting subtly researched and convincing. The venture in to the Low Countries added a nice edge.
