The Tides Inn, a one-of-a-kind British pub, is built on the end of a small peninsula jutting out from the Yorkshire mainland. At low tide the water is below the top of the walkway and people can freely enter or exit. But when the tide comes in, access goes out, and everyone present is a captive audience. Very few customers complain. The drinks never stop flowing. However, on this night, while the walkway is inaccessible, one of the eight imbibers is murdered. The seven survivors all have motives. Apparently there is absolutely no opportunity for any of the seven to do it.

Gruff Police Sergeant Reggie Duke and attractive Constable Dawn Tompkins clash as they jointly attempt to provide the solution to this baffling case.

A charming, classical, old-fashioned "whodunit" that will delight all Agatha Christy enthusiasts.

He has spent much of his life working all over the world. Nineteen of these years were spent in the Middle East, and two in South and Central America.

One of his enjoyments is curling up with a British style homebrew and reading a good British murder mystery. This British Pub murder mystery grew from this pastimes. The Middle Eastern part of this international experience is the basis for two of his books, Maadi's Adventures in Egypt, where children of all ages are able to experience the antiquities, sights, and culture of exotic Egypt, and Doublestar Conspiracy, which is an action-packed, thought-provoking adventure novel for grownups.
