This is the first mystery in a truly unique crime series. 'There comes a time when a novel raises the bar for a particular genre, and The Sea Detective does just that for Scottish crime fiction'. (Scotsman) Cal McGill is an Edinburgh-based oceanographer, environmentalist and one-of-a-kind investigator. Using his knowledge of the waves - ocean currents, prevailing winds, shipping records - McGill can track where objects have come from, or where they've gone. It's a unique skill that can help solve all sorts of mysteries. Such as when two severed feet wash up miles apart on two different islands off the coast of Scotland. Most strangely, forensic tests reveal that the feet belong to the same body. As Cal McGill investigates, he unravels a web of corruption, exploitation and violence, which threatens many lives across the globe - very soon including his own..."Elegantly written and compelling, it introduces a new, thoroughly modern hero into the crime-fighting canon...A crime writer to watch." (Scotsman). "Mark Douglas-Home has created a compelling protagonist." (The Times Literary Supplement). "Extremely moreish." (Herald). "Excellent." (Literary Review (Top Five Crime Novels of the Year)).
