‘… a well written, enjoyable story with a proper murder-mystery plot… Highly recommended.’ Puzzle Doctor, Classic Mysteries

Cass Lynch’s big break has finally arrived – she feels like she has struck gold after being asked to skipper a Viking longship for a film. However this means returning to the Shetland Islands, the place she fled as a teen.

When a corpse unexpectedly appears onboard the longship, she can run from the past no longer: Cass and her family come under intense scrutiny by the disturbingly shrewd Detective Inspector Macrae.

Even if Cass’s local knowledge and sailing wisdom help to clear the Lynch family of suspicion, they may not be enough to stay ahead of the murderer’s game. . . and avoid becoming the next victim.

Previously published as Death on a Longship.
