The Drowning Tide - Blair Dubh Trilogy #2 - a crime thriller

While Glasgow is in the grip of a relentless heatwave a riot breaks out in its toughest prison. Amid the chaos and carnage John Docherty, one of the most violent and reviled prisoners, manages to escape. After years of dreaming up the worst tortures his twisted mind can concoct he is now free to carry them out on the people he holds responsible for destroying his life. At the top of that list is Freya Donaldson.

Craig and Freya have been happily married for two years, the trauma of The Elemental murders firmly behind them in the wake of their new life together. Between the devastating news that they may never have their longed-for family and Craig's insane ex-girlfriend stalking them they decide to take a cruise down the west coast of Scotland to get away from it all for a while.

Unforeseen circumstances force them to stop at Blair Dubh, the village where they both grew up and the scene of The Elemental murders. Unknown to them bad things stalk them through the village, determined to destroy their idyllic new life. 

When first their boat then the graves of Freya's parents are vandalised they realise someone wants to hurt them. 

As the attacks on her increase in ferocity, Freya fears she'll end up buried in the Blair Dubh graveyard, the scene of so many of her nightmares.

Have read all of Dividing line stories and love each and everyone. Also read quite a lot of your other books which once I start I can't put down. I am wondering when the 3rd part of Blair Dubh will be released as I am chomping at the bit to read it. Thank you for all the reading pleasure you have given me, long may it continue. Thank you

Thanks for your lovely comments Wendy and for your support. I am currently working on Blair Dubh #3, as well as Dividing Line #7. As I'm having to do quite a bit of research for the third Blair Dubh book, which will be titled 'Electric Light', it will be released after Dividing Line #7, I anticipate around October-November this year, possibly a little earlier. I will announce it on here when I have a release date. Heather x
