Aberdeen, Scotland – 1840.

Return to an age where sail was being challenged by steam, new continents were opening, and the world was full of opportunities for people to be as good—or as evil—as they chose.

When the body of a local shipwright is found on the beach, neither the customers and suppliers he cheated nor the women he molested are surprised. But the mystery intrigues woodcarver John Grant, who determines to seek out the truth of the killing.

His work and his investigations bring him into contact with William Anderson, a rich merchant—and his daughter Helen.

Commissioned to create a figurehead that combines the features of two women, John eventually uncovers a sordid tale of blackmail and death as, simultaneously, he struggles to resist the pangs of unexpected love.

“Fantastic storytelling, murder, mystery and romance….” Amazon Vine Reviewer.
