Ly riven by tragedy and a community resentful at being accused of murder As Cal goes about his investigation he discovers an island that provokes dangerous passions in everyone that sets foot on it And he has a nagging worry if Max was murdered why shouldn't it happen agai. The Malice of Waves is the third instalment in the sea detective series It s not easy to find a fresh angle in crime fiction but Douglas Home manages to carve out a little niche with an oceanographer who specialises in tracking bodies lost at sea In this case Cal McGill is drafted in to help find out what happened to a boy who disappeared from a small island five year s previously His presence in the local community is resented and family are hardly welcoming either He s joined in the Outer Hebrides by Helen Jamieson a police officer pretending to an ordinary member of the public trying to get over a failed relationship While Cal rubs the locals and family up the wrong way while trying to get a handle on the local currents Helen makes friends with the locals by the hanging around the local tea shop Douglas Home creates a strong sense of place and immerses the reader in the tense relations between the locals and family There s nice characterisation of the villagers and the Wheeler family with both Cal and Helen being appealing leads The pace is steady and unrushed and the plot has plenty of blinds and misdirection While the main thread is nicely constructed the plotline with Pinkee Pryke a poacher of bird eggs felt like a plot device and was a little underdeveloped and not fully resolved Overall an engaging and atmospheric detective story

The Malice of Waves Cal McGill Sea Detective #3

For five years Priest's Island has guarded the secret of Max Wheeler's disappearance Each anniversary the boy's family gathers at the scene to mourn his loss and to commission a new inuiry into the mystery So far a retired chief constable a private detective a forensic arc. I would love to review this but the book ended up on page 274 The problem There are supposed to be 304 pages so it just end in the climax in mid sentence no less The back part of the book is missing I have contacted Book Depository and hope they will do something I d like to know how it ends

Mark Douglas-Home ð 3 summary

Haeologist and a former intelligence officer have failed to uncover what happened to fourteen year old Max Now Cal McGill an oceanographer with expertise in tracking bodies at sea has taken up the uest and finds himself caught between a father hell bent on vengeance a fami. Set in the Outer Hebrides on the fictional islands of Eilean Dubh and Priest s island the latter bought by an outsider Wheeler Wheeler is a grieving father who has turned inward from his daughters following the loss of his only son Max aged 14 five years before Each year on the anniversary of Max s disappearance the family returns the father brooding that his killer is harboured by the close knit community on Eilean Dubh and employs private investigators This year he recruits oceanographer The Sea Detective Cal McGill to check the surrounding seaThis the third book in the Sea Detective series is exceptionally well written and accomplished Yet for me there is too much emphasis on human frailty and relationships and too little of the dramatic landscapes and the power of the Atlantic storms and currents So strong the sea bottom will be scoured daily the sand and silt will shift and churn Even boulders will be dislodged 4stars
