The Killing Tide by Lin Anderson (Pan Macmillan, 2022)
Lin Anderson’s The Killing Tide (ISBN: 9781529033694, paperback). The Killing Tide is a fast-paced read. Balancing up the strong sense of menace and threat is a familiar family of investigators – not always the most comfortable or congenial of characters, but people who have each other’s backs. There is also a strong sense of place, particularly in the description of Orkney and its visceral weather. I’m looking forward to starting Lin’s newest book, The Party House – after I’ve got it signed at the Festival!
