“I finished Seeds of Doubt last night. It was a great book. I loved the story, Ingrid’s voyage and struggle, and the sense of Devon and history. The research struck me as particularly impressive... thanks again for the entertainment of a great book.” Simon Hall - Home Affairs correspondent for BBC South West UK.

Finally he has the answers. But the past casts a long shadow, ensnaring him in a relentless search for the truth - however deadly the secret it holds.
