Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Driftwood Girls by Mark Douglas-Home. 

Twenty-three years ago, Christina Tolmie vanished without trace from northern France, leaving her young daughters Kate and Flora orphaned and alone. 

Now Flora is also missing. In desperation, Kate searches her Edinburgh house and finds a piece of note paper with just one name: Cal McGill. 

Cal is a so-called sea detective, an expert on the winds and the tides, and consequently an exceptionally gifted finder of lost things - and lost people. 

Kate hopes that Cal might not only find her sister but also unlock the mystery that has overshadowed both women's lives: what happened to their beloved mother all those years before? 

Unfortunately, Cal doesn't think he can help. But that's only because he hasn't yet realised that the dark undercurrents of the case will ultimately lead him back dangerously close to home....

Brilliant series

Another excellent Sea Detective novel by Mark Douglas-Home and, as always, perfect narration by David Monteath. These stories are so intelligent, well-written and thoroughly engrossing. Interesting characters, plot and settings. Cal is a wonderful invention, one of my great favourites and having his work involve tracking lost cargo/corpses by ocean currents makes for a fascinating character. Hope Mr Douglas-Home is hard at work on the next instalment!

NOW BREATH IN...

Having listened to the previous three books by this Author, I can assure you, there will be no disappointment! So well performed by David Monteath...and it's my belief that David is one of the best. It held me enthralled right to the last word. Note to Author...Will you please get your head down and produce the next book...I can't really settle until I know what happens next 🤣

Another great read in this series

I really enjoyed this fourth book in the sea detective series. The characters were interesting and I felt like I got to know Cal a bit better. Lots of interesting twists and turns and an intriguing outcome.

Plodding

Listening is like watching a jigsaw puzzle slowly pieced together. If you enjoy jigsaw puzzles you might like this book. Otherwise you might find it a bit tedious. It is certainly clever but is it interesting? I think not.
