It's Autumn, 1951. Robert Lynnford, star crime-reporter for the London Herald, is asked by an old friend to investigate the mystery of a yacht - the Sea Breeze - found at anchor in an isolated cove on the Devonshire coast with one of its crew floating dead in the water and the others missing.
When he arrives in the seaside town of Westcliff, Lynnford is alarmed to find his friend missing and his wife in fear for her life. Determined to set about to solve the case, Lynnford soon discovers that he’s not welcome himself and the local police refuse to co-operate with him.
But it takes much more than some threats to put off this reporter. When events quickly escalate, pieces of the puzzle snap into place and Lynnford uncovers a plan that has treachery at its heart and is yet more sinister than he could have imagined.
The Sea Breeze is a stand-alone story within a detective mystery series based on the investigations of Robert Lynnford. This novel introduces his newspaper colleagues and friends who reappear in subsequent stories. Ideal for fans of the more retro-detective crime, this story will take you back to the past where a mystery was solved with the mind instead of technology.
