In this story, a Dutch ship flounders off the Scottish coast, and is wrecked on the rocks as it tries to reach the safe harbour of St Andrews. The whole town is mesmerised by the sight of the ship and its special cargo, and soon a tug of war ensues between the good people of that town to gain possession and control of that cargo. Emotion runs so high, someone is prepared to kill for it...... Despite his efforts to stay neutral, Huw is drawn into the situation and finds himself tossed on the tide of events, just like the ship.
It is an ill wind that dashes ashore the ship carrying it. The only survivor is Jacob, a delirious young Dutchman who speaks some cryptic words to a local innkeeper before dying, and this sequence of events plunges Hew into a quest to find out the truth behind the matter. The local baxters (breadmakers) want control of the windmill to improve their own position in the town and, perhaps as importantly, to deny it to anyone else. However, under the laws of marine salvage, the true owner of the windmill must first be determined.
Hew is contacted by the Coroner (in this context, the King’s agent) to investigate and determine the truth of the matter, and in this it looks as though he might finally have found his niche. The Coroner, Andrew Wood, is a nicely sinister figure whose motivation remains shrouded, and whose relations with the rest of the town are never clear.
The early death of Jacob gives Time & Tide its central mystery and sets Hew off on a path that leads him from St. Andrews to the Dutch Netherlands, embroiled in a savage fight for independence against the Catholic Spanish.Read more ›
