Publisher's Summary

Introducing veteran Scotland Yard Chief Inspector Peter Cammon, this novel finds Cammon journeying to the Jurassic Coast to solve a seemingly ordinary domestic crime.
At first glance, the perpetrator appears to have murdered his wife before drowning in the English Channel, but Cammon soon learns that his case is merely a sideshow. A broader series of murders has been unfolding along the cliffs, baffling the local police. Realizing that his assignment cannot be completed without figuring out the serial killings that threaten the region, the detective travels from London, Dorset, and Devon to the island of Malta, relentlessly following the overlapping threads of the two cases to their shocking climax.
The first installment in a series of three, this cliffhanger sets a chilling tone for the British sleuth's forthcoming mysteries.

First and Last, hopefully

Would you try another book from David Whellams and/or Gerard Doyle?

Mr. Doyle, absolutely; Mr. Whellams, not a chance.


Would you ever listen to anything by David Whellams again?

No


Have you listened to any of Gerard Doyle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, he's a fine narrator./reader/performer.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Walking into the Ocean?

This book needed a strong editor with a lot of red ink. The lead character was not developed in any meaningful way. Instead he seemed to be a sexist, simple-minded git whose proclivity for secrecy was responsible for several deaths. I think the local chief of police was on the right track to insist the dolt be called back to London.

Mediocre thriller

The novel features yet another lead detective who's supposed to be deep and interesting, yet comes across as just the opposite: both dim and dull, except when he jumps to conclusions for no apparent reason. Further, the novel suffers from truly tedious back stories that lend nothing to the plot. Otherwise, the story is moderately interesting--enough to get one through a work-out at the gym--but that's about it.
