Summary

Change is afoot at Kings Lake Central police station. A most unexpected new detective inspector takes up his post this Monday morning, and the oldest detective in the place takes a momentous decision.
Around them, other officers are considering their own situations, and even the building itself seems to be facing an uncertain future. But life and death go on, nevertheless, and by lunchtime someone will make a grim discovery on the Norfolk saltmarshes. A stranger seems to have suffered a slow and agonizing death out there.
As the team from Kings Lake uncover his story, they reveal another, much older one with its origins far back in the previous century. In the tide that governs the affairs of men, it seems, love and loss, betrayal and revenge are timeless themes. Fans of Colin Dexter, P. D. James, and Ruth Rendell have all found much to enjoy in DC Smith's previous investigations.

Brilliant

Hope this isn’t the last one in this series as I enjoyed this book very much. From book one you get inside the characters and feel you know them but ,you never do ,so keep reading.

DC does it again

as always I really enjoyed reading about the exploits of DC Smith and the intricacies that go on inside of his head
I found the whole series a fantastic read and as always ain't very believable set of characters within each story

I hope this is not the end as DC has too much to offer

Wonderful British modern detective series!

Time and Tide is Book 7 in the DC Smith series. Like the prior 6 novels in the series it earns 5 stars. DC Smith is a police detective with 30 years experience who got tired of being in management as Detective Inspector and asked to be demoted to Detective Sargent in order to work cases. Those who report to him love working for him, but he is nothing but trouble for most of those in management who consider his high rate of solving cases to be luck rather than skill. Also, he tends to disobey direct orders and generally shows a lack of respect for authority. But he solves 100% of his cases. At the beginning of this book he finally takes retirement (2 years late) giving 3 months notice. Will this be the final novel in the series?

Gildart Jackson's outstanding narration of this series deserves special recognition. His voice and pace are pitch perfect.

Wonderful Series

This may be the last DC Smith book and that is sad. This character seems so real to me that I imagine him, retired, living an active and satisfying life, possibly sometimes missing the challenge of his days as a policeman.

In this story, DC's retirement is in the near future. This isn't an "action packed" story, but it is an instructive story. DC passes on the things he has learned in his years as a police officer to the younger people who will take over the work. DC also comes to terms with himself about the upcoming major change in his life. He does both things very well.

I would be delighted if there is another DC Smith book, but I'm not expecting it. I will listen to the entire series again and expect I will be as entertained as I was the first time.

Gildart Jackson's narration is just perfect.
