Book Description

In the swell of a storm, a ship is wrecked in St Andrews harbour. A young Flemish sailor, the last man aboard, collapses and dies at the inn. The cargo of the ship appears a welcome windfall but soon brings devastation to the town as petty squabbling turns to rage and tragedy. Hew traces the ship to its source in Ghent, where he uncovers a strange secret. Unwilling to allow the law to take its course, he returns once more to the bitter role of advocate, to find his deepest principles are tested to the core.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Book 3 of the Hew Cullan mysteries 23 Dec. 2011
    By GMR
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Eagerly anticipated book 3 of the Hew Cullan mysteries as I found books 1 and 2 very addictive...... Having just finished 'Time & Tide' it was certainly a worthy follow-on to the previous books in the series. In fact the characters are developing nicely now and the feel of the natural and political landscape is excellent. 'Time & Tide' would certainly make an excellent film!

    4.0 out of 5 stars A glimpse into different times 22 July 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I enjoyed this very much. I'm not usually a reader of medieval crime fiction and this is the second book in the series that I've read. While it took me a while to get into the period in the first one, this came much more easily and I found it simpler to understand the vast differences between then and now. The characters are well developed and the relationships between them interesting. Quite startling in parts to realise how subservient women were and how tenuous their hold on life could be when stepping out of line. It made me feel very grateful for being part of the twenty-first century.

    Enjoyed the first book in the series and have not been disappointed with the three following books. Hew Cullen is an interesting character and it is fascinating to watch his character develop during the series. Look forward to reading more of this series.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Time and Tide 27 Jun. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Like all the Hew Cullen books, this one is a good read. My only criticism is that I find difficulty in keeping track of the characters, and who is speaking at any given time. This problem may be mind rather than the author's. I recommend the book to anyone interested in historical mystery stories.

    If you like period mysteries, this series of books is sure to please. Grips you from the dramatic opening. Cullen and the other main characters grow pleasing through the series.
