The Rising Tide – Paperback published 4th September 2014

The paperback edition of The Rising Tide – the third book in the Tom Pascoe series – is due out on 4th September 2014 and will be available through all the  usual outlets including, of course,  direct from me.

The story is set in September 1799. Tom is still grieving over the death of the woman he loved and looks for solace at the bottom of a bottle. His superiors begin to doubt his ability to do his job but after a body is found floating in the Thames, he is ordered to undertake a murder inquiry. It quickly transpires that the victim is no ordinary man but a close confidant of William Pitt, the King’s First Minister. Pitt, with his friend William Wilberforce, is facing fierce opposition to his attempts to force through anti-slavery legislation.  As the two men find themselves in increasing danger, Tom must pull himself together or be dragged under.
