About this item

Set in 1930s Scotland and brimming with eccentric characters and incisive humor, The Turning Tide is Catriona McPherson's best Dandy Gilver mystery yet! It's a breezy Scottish summer of 1936 and aristocratic sleuth Dandy Silver, along with trusted colleague Alec Osborne, has been called to solve the strange case of the Cramond Ferrywoman, on the Firth of the Forth.From their cheerless digs in a local stately home, Dandy and Alec track Vesper Kemp, the ferrywoman, to a tiny tidal island. She seems to have lost her mind, roaming the beaches in rags, ranting about snakes and mercury. What is even more troubling, is that Vesper claims she murdered Peter Haslett, a young man who fell into the river, trying to row past ones of its four water mills, and drowned.



About the Author

Catriona McPherson

Hello and thanks for stopping by my Amazon page. I'm a crime-fiction writer (and reader and super-fan) . I write all over the genre: modern psychological thrillers - mostly set in Scotland, although I did go to Yorkshire one (AS SHE LEFT IT) ; preposterous 1930s detective stories with a gently-born lady sleuth (AFTER THE ARMISTICE BALL is the first) ; and comedies set in a barely-fictionalised version of my home-town in California, where the heroine says everything I've always thought and never mentioned . . .You can find me at www.catrionamcpherson.com. I'm on Facebook most days too, talking about books I'm writing, books I'm reading, and meat pies I'm eating. On Twitter (more books and some pies) , I'm @CatrionaMcP.Happy reading, whatever you're reading,Cx
