Against the Tide Audiobook

A fisherman lies dead. A beautiful girl is strangled. Can Detective Drake uncover the secrets that connect them?

When a fisherman is found impaled to the sand in a small island community Drake comes up against a wall of silence.

When a young girl is killed Drake is stumped at the motive for her death. But with lots of money at stake with the development of a nearby nuclear power station Drake believes there are powerful forces at work.

Images recovered from a computer suggest a more sinister motive behind the deaths – how far will people go to protect their way of life and language?
