A Sea Detective Mystery

Cal McGill is a unique investigator and oceanographer who uses his expertise to locate things – and sometimes people – lost and missing at sea.

His expertise could unravel the haunting mystery of why, twenty-six years ago on a remote Scottish beach, Megan Bates strode out into the cold ocean and let the waves take her away.

Megan's daughter, Violet Wells, was abandoned as a baby on the steps of a local hospital the day before the mother she never knew took her own life.

As McGill is drawn into Violet's search for the truth he encounters a coastal community divided by obsession and grief, and united only by a conviction that its secrets should stay buried . . .
