A naked body found on a lonely island. A band of sailors lifting graves in the dead of night. Can Paddy discover the secret that led a sheltered young man to a most gruesome death?
In his second full novel, former one-armed policeman Patrick Smythe takes to the Isle of Mull at the request of a distraught mother, looking for the truth of why her only son was found dead on the small island of Gometra. Along with his new feisty assistant, Susan Calderwood, Paddy uncovers the true story of a brutal death and incurs the wrath of a local smugglers, sailors and a well-known photographer. But when things turn nasty, can Paddy plot a way out and see that justice is done?
“The Graves of Calgary Bay” continues the tale of the Ulster sleuth as his work takes him to the Isle of Mull, and the lonely island of Gometra. If you love underdogs and smart, dogged hounds of the truth, then you will love the adventures of Paddy and his red-haired teenage understudy.
Those who mess with the dead bring a reckoning onto themselves!
