Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of The Malice of Waves by Mark Douglas-Home, read by David Monteath.
Investigator Cal McGill uses his knowledge of tides, winds and currents to solve mysteries no-one else can.

Cal knows that a violent storm is approaching. But what he doesn't know is that when it cuts off the island, a killer will see their chance...
