Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Woman Who Walked into the Sea by Mark Douglas-Home, read by David Monteath.
The daughter who nobody wanted learns the truth about the mother she never knew.
Cal McGill is a unique investigator and oceanographer who uses his expertise to locate things - and sometimes people - lost or missing at sea. His expertise could unravel the haunting mystery of why, 26 years ago on a remote Scottish beach, Megan Bates strode out into the cold ocean and let the waves wash her away.
Megan's daughter, Violet Wells, was abandoned as a baby on the steps of a local hospital just hours before the mother she never knew took her own life. As McGill is drawn into Violet's search for the truth, he encounters a coastal community divided by obsession and grief and united only by a conviction that its secrets should stay buried....
"Entertaining and gripping mystery." ( The Herald)
"A classic whodunit." ( The Scotsman)
"Cal McGill is a triumph...a wonderfully unique creation." (crimefictionlover.com)
"Great writing, enjoyable story-telling and wonderful characterization." ( The Scots Magazine)

not really a whodunit
There is little 'sea detective' investigation for a series called 'sea detective'. The first book was much better. Actually, half of the book is about the psychological trouble of a woman seeking to understand the death of her mother the night she was born. This might be an important issue for the author, but it was boring for me. Moreover, even though the acting people don't know the trues, the reader can easily guess it, except for some details. Only at the end the plot gets thrilling for a while.
