Black Fish by Sam Llewellyn
Gavin Chance has been a policeman and an Olympic sailor. Now he is a yacht broker, and things are not going smoothly. His crooked partner has disappeared, someone has left a corpse on a stolen trawler, and he needs to identify the perpetrator before he becomes a corpse himself. All his old policing skills are suddenly relevant once more as he finds himself in a struggle for survival. Sam Llewellyn skillfully combines maritime skullduggery with the elements of a modern thriller and ties it altogether with a ribbon of black humor. He breathes life into the his coastal settings with details that come from a lifetime of sailing experience.
