The Case of the Drowned Man
By G.W. Colkitto
G.W Colkitto’s charming series of Sebastian Symes novellas transports the reader back to the late nineteenth century: a world of gentleman detectives, ingenious thieves, bumbling constables, and cryptic mysteries.
In ‘The Case of the Drowned Man’, Sebastian Symes and his loyal companion, Major Arbuthnot Ritson, set out to spend a seemingly uneventful few days aboard their trusted vessel, Aphrodite, in the calm South-West, but the trip is ruined by Symes’ failed attempt to save an anonymous drowning man at the mercy of a storm at Needle Point.
Soon, Symes and Ritson find themselves entangled in a mystery that has been kept secret for generations.
With murder and lies washing up at Wreckers Cove, will Symes be able to catch the culprit?
