About the Book

From the author of the bestselling D.C.I. Daley series comes a thrilling new tall tale from Kinloch.

It’s December 1968. Having cheated Sandy Hoynes out of a rowing race and navigation certificate when they were young, Dreich MacCallum makes an unexpected return to Kinloch. 

With the Girl Maggie up on the slip awaiting urgent repairs, Hoynes takes to his bed, the memory of it all too much. When first mate Hamish persuades his skipper to get up and put the fishing boat back into the water, there are unexpected consequences that put Hoynes’ liberty and reputation at risk. 

Has Dreich won the day again? 

But the spirits of the past have yet to have their say. Upon whom will the winter sun set?
