Summary

When the luxury cruiser, hastily renamed Great Britain, berths in Kinloch harbour, the pressure is on DCI Jim Daley. The UK government are taking a high-powered group of businessmen and women on a tour of the British isles, golfing and seeing the sights, as part of a push for global trade. But when one of the crew goes missing, and an elderly local ornithologist disappears, will the pressure become too great?  

The arrival of a face from the past sends Daley’s world into a tailspin. And the lives of the passengers and crew of SS Great Britain as well as the country’s economic future are in jeopardy. DS Brian Scott comes to the fore and, replete with a temporary promotion, is once more - most reluctantly, in his case - back at sea.  

Daley faces a life and death struggle, but is this his last throw of the dice?

ends in agonizing cliff hanger, so disappointing

As in the previous books, absolutely Love the characters, especially Scott, but the whole cast is engaging. Great story., I was totally engrossed in the mystery, for once I did not guess early on who the true villain was. Then, in the final chapter the author turns to the dark side, leaving us with a very unpleasant cliffhanger. If I knew how bad the ending would be, I surly would have waited for the next in the series and read as one. Up till now I thought this series to be one of the best, now not so sure.

Be careful, this is NOT the sequel to Book 3

After I finished Dark Suits and Sad Songs this was listed as next in series, but it’s not. It is a really good story, but it was a spoiler for the book I should have read as Book 4. The books aren’t labeled well on Amazon, a problem I’ve found with many series.
