With another storm fast approaching, Paula is faced with a choice. Leave alive or risk being trapped with a killer on an inescapable is

land, as the blood tide rushes in…


I loved the front cover of Blood Tide with the view of the sea, cliffs and the lighthouse and that story relates to the cover. Readers can always count on Claire McGowan to write good thrillers. Margaret Maguire, mother of Paula, daughter of Kathleen, wife of PJ, but she wasn’t she was someone else now. Young Paula had come home from school to find her mother gone. Paula’s mother went missing in 1993 and had left a note explaining that bad people are after her and that she had to leave.The question is where did Paula’s mother go? Her father had remarried. Pat was now PJ’S wife. During a violent storm Paula Maguire, a forensic psychologist is called out to investigate the disappearance of a young couple in Bone Island. Questions had been asked, had the couple fallen into the sea? Or could they have been pushed. Paula had mixed feelings about going back to Bone Island as she went there for a day trip with her Parents.
