    One thought on “Time & Tide”

    1. Best in the seriesIt is the last book in the New Cullen Mysteries I read, and found it riveting It expanded the story into the Spanish Netherlands and the wars there in the 16th century The author describes how the war spreads mistrust and lawlessness, and gives the reader an idea, how theConsequence of the Reformation affects other countries It is historically informative as it turns history into an adventure in true Scottish writing succession

    2. Was this my favourite Hew Cullan mystery so far It could have been, I think, though they have all been good so far It s good to see the characters developing and begin to know how they may react to certain situations I loved the twist in the story plot and the moral dilemma posed which still has me wondering about whether it was the right thing to do or not I like the cliffhanger that we were left with, too next book is already purchased and ready to read.

    3. The Wild Winds of Fortune Hew Cullan still has problems After the events of the previous book, he seems to have decided that being a lawyer is perhaps not his calling, and so he has returned to his hometown of St Andrews and the life of a professor at the College He spends his days flirting with the sister of one of his pupils and talking with his friends, seemingly content to put off making the hard decisions about his future And then the windmill comes to town It is an ill wind that dashes ash [...]

    4. A couple of new characters are introduced in this one, that I hope we ll see of, The Coroner of Fife, Andrew Woods, who employs Huw to solve the mystery of a shipwreck, and cursed windmill On his travels to Ghent we meet the second, Robert, a mercenary, who keeps Huw out of trouble, or does he We also get a glimpse into an old character s new life.The plot was nicely rounded out and came full circle back to St Andrews in a satisfactory way, that in the last one had felt contrived and overworked [...]

    5. I found this one particularly interesting and pleasantly domestic, away from some of the high politicking of the others in the series The settings were convincing and the technical detail fascinating.
