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....

Every bit as good as the first book
Good story with a few twists
David Monteath is a good narrator who makes all the characters believable
Mark Douglas-Home has captured the 'detective with a difference' perfectly. Good to have this type of story without the seemingly obligatory Detective Inspector as the main character
