Well, if I hadn t been stuck on a long train journey with no other book, I d have put this down by the end of chapter two No one involved with the production of the book seems to have any idea what a comma is for, and question marks also appear in some rather odd places The use of figures as opposed to names of numbers was inconsistent and irritating I was irked, too, by a point in his acknowledgements where he seems to imply that almost all research can be done through journalism and it s a rar [...]

Within the space of a week, two of my most trusted sources for book recommendations raved about Mark Douglas Home s The Sea Detective When I looked it up online and read the synopsis, I immediately ordered a copy Actually I ordered it and the second book in the series because I trusted those recommendations so much My friends did not steer me wrong Now I m joining my voice with theirs to say that if you enjoy well written crime fiction with an unusual focus and quirky characters, you need to get [...]

Neben Peter May gibt es kaum einen schottischen Krimiautor, der die F higkeit hat, Gegenw rtiges und Vergangenes, gepaart mit grandiosen Landschaftsbeschreibungen, stimmig in eine spannende Geschichte zu verpacken, weshalb mich auch eine gewisse Wehmut ergriffen hat, als ich Moorbruch , dessen abschlie enden Band der Lewis Trilogie k rzlich in einer ausgezeichneten bersetzung bei Zsolnay erschienen , beendet hatte.Gl cklicherweise gibt es auch im Krimibereich ein monatliches Ranking, aus dem ich [...]

The Sea Detective is a hugely enjoyable read, told in an engaging and compelling voice An awful lot happens in its 280 pages, with its three main intersecting plot lines, but at no point does the story feel overcomplicated or underdeveloped or overly contrived Packing so much in, in terms of historical, social and scientific contextualisation and the back stories of the various characters, whilst keep the story front and centre without the text becoming bloated or preachy is a remarkable feat Th [...]

If you are looking for an original, intriguing and utterly compelling book to read then you ve found it with The Sea Detective When I received this book and read the press release, I became very excited because when you read over one hundred crime fiction stories every year, you are constantly on the lookout for something that is different from everything else out there It s also important to say that The Sea Detective goes beyond just being a simple crime story as it is also a thriller centred [...]

I thought this was a very good idea which was reasonably well done I would like to have given this four stars because there s promise here, but it did have some pretty serious flaws and in the end I couldn t, I m afraid.This is a crime novel with both police and private detective elements Cal McGill is a rather geeky but apparently rather sexy marine expert who can track beached objects back to their source at sea He is slightly clumsily introduced, as is the police officer Helen Jamieson, a bri [...]

Once in a while a book like The Sea Detective comes along that is just so different The genre of crime fiction is bursting at the seams and it must be very difficult to think of something new to bring to it Well, for me this is it This is one of the most unique crime novels I have read in a long time The Sea Detective , first novel in the series featuring Cal McGill, an Edinburgh based expert oceanographer and marine tracker, courtesy of Flotsam and Jetsam Investigations, is certainly different [...]

This contemporary Scotland set mystery novel is complex and rich storytelling In it s wide ranging plot, the classic themes of loss, the quest for truth, and the desire for revenge are driving forces There are three main characters all are damaged in one way or another but in the end all display great strength Cal McGill, the titular Sea Detective , is a remote person who studies ocean currents mostly in hopes of solving the where and how of his grandfather s death For compelling but different r [...]

I ve been looking forward to this book and it did not disappoint me There are three story threads and they intersect beautifully I especially enjoyed the personal family mystery Cal was working through The storyline about the two young girls brought the spotlight to the sex trafficking trade and was quite shocking and very well woven into the tale I found myself quite attached to Basanti Then there is the excellent police procedural line concerning the severed feet and the difficult working rela [...]

The two stories twist together superbly, and the characters in the book complement each other and fit the needs of the book so well The descriptions are so well written I could really imagine the people on the island or the boat or wherever they were at that time A thoroughly enjoyable read I recommend it.

The Sea Detective is made up of several threads We are first introduced to teenage Indian girls Preeti and Basanti, sold by their families into a life of prostitution They are clearly taken far from home, though the reader is not immediately made aware just how far A second thread revolves around Cal McGill, a postgraduate student with an interest in mapping ocean currents, who also spends time planting rare wild flowers in the gardens of prominent politicians to draw attention to the threat of [...]

I bought this book with a slight wince It s from a small publisher and a new writer, so I really bought it out of curiosity and a sense of duty, because it s Scottish and it s crime and I like both those things But actually it was considerably BETTER than most of the greatly heralded Scandinavian crime books I ve stumbled through recently or thrown aside in frustration The Sea Detective is about Cal McGill, a student of tides and currents, of how objects float and move round the coasts, with a h [...]

Mark Douglas Hume has created a thriller with a marked degree of originality The idea of an oceanographer being involved in crime investigation makes for a different tack on this type of novel Sound characters, especially the oddball mixture Cal McGill, the sea detective, and Helen Jamieson, the honest copper struggling with her self esteem, plus varied themes, including the horror that is sex trafficking and the undying power of family ties, provide the novel with a fine constitution I can just [...]
