When a gruesomely mutilated body trussed up in a distinctive fashion washes up on a lonely stretch of the south coast in the 1950s, DI Sonny Russell is soon struggling to unravel an intriguingly knotty puzzle. And as more bodies, similarly tortured, appear he begins to realise that, for some at least, the war is far from over.
A trail of intrigue leads him to Europe where he befriends a French detective and together they set out to track down the villains.
Blood on the Tide is a story of the sea and boats, murder and Nazis that begins in a sleepy coastal backwater and takes the reader through post-war France and Germany.
The novel is set around Rye , Rye Harbour and Camber Sands and there are thinly veiled references to the Rye and Camber Tram.
