Haeologist and a former intelligence officer have failed to uncover what happened to fourteen year old Max Now Cal McGill an oceanographer with expertise in tracking bodies at sea has taken up the uest and finds himself caught between a father hell bent on vengeance a fami. In brief enjoyableIn fullI came across this book about Cal McGill the sea detective and found it was the third in the series I m always concerned about starting reading part way through a series however the premise was intriguing so I decided to give it a try and I m glad I did Five years ago a 14 year old boy has gone missing from a Hebridean island His father has been obsessed by the disappearance He continues to suspect a closeknit community on the closest occupied island of concealing the truth Cal McGill comes on to the scene in his role as an oceanographer He seeks to find where a body may have ended up I found the start held my attention and was entertaining always assuming you find the idea of using a dead pig in the sea to try and work out where a human body may have goneThe writing is easy to read and has a well written feel to it The characters of both the investigators and the island community emerge and feel fairly well rounded and interesting In particular the character of Cal somewhat understated I thought was very good indeed As with so many of the literary investigators he is a loner and in Cal s case someone who is happier watching and trying to understand the sea rather than anything else He also seems to be uite a good listener The other character which is very well worked and utilised is the setting evocative writing paints a good picture of windswept isolation I do have one or two reservations about this story I found the family of the boy who went missing the Wheelers less well developed sadly I get the fact that the father is simply obsessed and overwhelmed by the disappearance of his son and that that is very much part of the story however the other siblings three girls did not really emerge as people until late in the book The other reservation is over the character and storyline surrounding Stanley Pryke this didn t really work for me I d prefer not to give anything away about the details of the story and anyway I enjoyed the bookI intend to read of Cal McGill who I found an interesting and fairly original character in a well written storyhttpviewsonorgukfictionmalice

    I love this series Unless lightning strikes twice it will be my find of 2016 Although I didn't find The Malice of Waves to be uite as mesmerizing as the first two books it's still an excellent read and not to be missed Douglas Home changes it up a bit for this third book and it's all to do with the villagers on Priest's Island The settings for the author's books are wonderful You can hear and watch the sea birds wheeli
