Product description

Review

Douglas-Home's sophomore series entry for his oceanographer sleuth is simply intoxicating. The young protagonist has a romantic streak that complements his typical scientific method. --Library Journal

Douglas-Home has done a truly superb job of portraying both the Scottish Countryside and the memorable characters he peoples it with. --I Love a Mystery

About the Author
