Summary

Murder at Flood Tide is the second DI Jack Knox murder mystery set in and around Edinburgh.

Detective Jack Knox is faced with a troubling case when a woman’s body is found on a beach near Edinburgh. Police match her to missing persons, because her personal effects have been swept out to sea. When she is finally identified, the victim’s last known movements are investigated. She was courted by a man who proves elusive, having evaded surveillance cameras. He has covered his tracks well. Was this her killer? On top of the pressures of the investigation, Jack Knox must deal with a gremlin in the well-oiled investigative machine: an officer from another force seems set on undermining his authority and upsetting his team. Can DI Knox overcome the challenges and collar the killer before he strikes again?

Police procedural at its best

Good old fashioned police procedural. No frills, no weird and wonderful plots. Straightforward police work.

Well written with a little too much detail at times

Most enjoyable a good story but a little flat at the end where they fail to make the most of the unfolding drama.

A serviceable police procedural

A nice basic police procedural. Nothing to get too excited about, but moves along at a good clip with a decent plot. I like David Monteath as narrator, so that makes it more enjoyable. The characters are ok, not as developed as I’d prefer them to be, but not flat.

A nice light read. My only real annoyance is our lead male character in a romantic relationship with someone 20 years younger. This seems to be a pattern with male writers of investigative novels. I just roll my eyes and want to scream “get over yourselves & get real!” As if 20 something professional women are regularly running around panting over 40 & 50 something men. Ew.
