Just after midnight the first of eight distress rockets is fired. Why did theCalifornian look on while theTitanicsank? As soon as Boston Americanreporter John Steadman lays eyes on the man who stood the midnight watch on the Californian, he knows there's another story lurking behind the official one.

Summary : When the body of a woman is discovered in a fisherman's net in Quebec's Gaspé Peninsula, new recruit Detective Sergeant Joaquin Moralès is thrown in at the deep end… First in a beautifully written, atmospheric and addictive new series. ***Runner-up for the Scott Moncrieff Prize for Translations from French*** ‘Wonderfully atmospheric … I genuinely couldn't put this book down' Gill Paul 'You might want to grab this release if you've read everything by Louise Penny and need more Quebecois noir to feed your crime-loving tendencies' Crime Fiction Lover ________________ Truth lingers in murky waters… As Montrealer Catherine Day sets foot in a remote fishing village and starts asking around about her birth mother, the body of a woman dredges up in a fisherman's nets. Not just any woman, though: Marie Garant, an elusive, nomadic sailor and unbridled beauty who once tied many a man's heart in knots. Detective Sergeant Joaquin Moralès, newly drafted to the area from the suburbs of Montreal, barely has time to unpack his suitcase before he's thrown into the deep end of the investigation. On Quebec's outlying Gaspé Peninsula, the truth can be slippery, especially down on the fishermen's wharves. Interviews drift into idle chit-chat, evidence floats off with the tide and the truth lingers in murky waters. It's enough to make DS Moralès reach straight for a large whisky… Both a dark and consuming crime thriller and a lyrical, poetic ode to the sea, We Were the Salt of the Sea is a stunning, page-turning novel, from one of the most exciting new names in crime fiction. ________________ Praise for Roxanne Bouchard: ‘Colourful, authentic characters with the kind of flavour that can only be inspired by real locals. So good it'll make you want to pack your bags and drive straight to the seaside' Journal de Montréal ‘Lyrical and elegiac, full of quirks and twists' William Ryan ‘Asks questions right from page one' Quentin Bates ‘An isolated Canadian fishing community, a missing mother, and some lovely prose. Very impressed by this debut so far' Eva Dolan 'A tour de force of both writing and translation' Su Bristow 'The translation from French has retained a dreamily poetic cast to the language, but it's det-fic for all that, as DS Joaquin Morales, transplanted from balmy Mexican shores to a remote Quebecois fishing community, investigates a woman's death at sea. This is the first book by Bouchard, renowned Canadian playwright and author, to be translated into English' Sunday Times 'Characters are well-drawn, from Moralès, the cop, and his sturdy inspector, Marlène, to the husky fishermen who were Marie's devoted suitors three decades ago. There's a comic element: the chef at the bistro, a mine of misleading information; the alcoholic priest who was never ordained - and the appalling undertaker who was once a used-car salesman and never forgot the spiel … An exotic curiosity, raw nugget' Shots Mag

Summary : The Long Call is the No.1 bestselling first novel in the Two Rivers series from Sunday Times bestseller and creator of Vera and Shetland, Ann Cleeves. In North Devon, where the rivers Taw and Torridge converge and run into the sea, Detective Matthew Venn stands outside the church as his father's funeral takes place. The day Matthew turned his back on the strict evangelical community in which he grew up, he lost his family too. Now he's back, not just to mourn his father at a distance, but to take charge of his first major case in the Two Rivers region; a complex place not quite as idyllic as tourists suppose. A body has been found on the beach near to Matthew's new home: a man with the tattoo of an albatross on his neck, stabbed to death. Finding the killer is Venn’s only focus, and his team’s investigation will take him straight back into the community he left behind, and the deadly secrets that lurk there.

Summary : An Amazon Charts bestseller. For a Florida police diver, danger rises to the surface in an adventurous thriller by the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Naturalist. Coming from scandalous Florida treasure hunters and drug smugglers, Sloan McPherson is forging her own path, for herself and for her daughter, out from under her family's shadow. An auxiliary officer for Lauderdale Shores PD, she's the go-to diver for evidence recovery. Then Sloan finds a fresh kill floating in a canal--a woman whose murky history collides with Sloan's.

Stalked by an assassin, pitted against a ruthless cartel searching for a lost fortune, and under watch within her ranks, Sloan has only one ally: the legendary DEA agent who put Sloan's uncle behind bars. He knows just how deep corruption runs--and the kind of danger Sloan is in. To stay alive, Sloan must stay one step ahead of her enemies--both known and unknown--and a growing conspiracy designed to pull her under.

Summary : Welcome to the Isle of Man's first and only Detective Agency... (they're not very good) This is a wonderfully funny, lighthearted crime caper. The characters are bumbling idiots with the best of intentions. Please, take time to read the description and read the look inside feature to make sure this is a book for you. If you're after a sombre crime thriller then this is not for you! If you're looking for a gentle read to put a smile on your face, then read on my friends. 'Another brilliant book . Great story and so very very funny sides are hurting . Looking forward to reading more very soon I hope!' 'First time I have ever laughed out loud at a detective story.' 'This book will have you in tears but for the right reasons.' 'Eyes Peeled' is the Isle of Man's first and only Detective Agency... Not much happens on the idyllic Island that needs detecting, so, on the whole, the team are not the most adept. In fact, generally speaking, they're pretty useless. One of the agency's more eager employees is Sam Levy. Nearing forty, he's finally found a job he actually loves - even if he isn't particularly good at it. Okay, let's be honest. He's rubbish... Still, Sam's services are secured by persons unknown to track down a glamorous, yet mysterious, art dealer recently arrived on the sleepy Island. Her arrival itself isn't overly suspicious... but the international crime boss hot on her tail most certainly is! Sam is desperate to prove himself and impress his pretty colleague, Abby, but this investigation could end up putting him in rather a spot of bother, with our hero risking life, limb, and hairpiece! With this case, he could have bitten off more than he can chew.

To add insult to injury his divorce papers recently came through and just as he was diagnosed with cancer. Somebody up there just doesn't like him. And to cap it all off he's been lumbered with his ex-wife's dog, Tavish, whose two great pleasures in life seem to be making John's own life miserable and an unhealthy predilection for pork scratchings. When Archie, a climate scientist and fellow cancer patient, gets whisked away by the Home Office and then unexpectedly commits suicide, John suspects foul play. Setting his troubles aside, and with Tavish reluctantly in tow, he sets out to investigate. So begins a voyage of discovery that takes the pair across the nation's capital.
