BOOKS: The Rising Tide by Ann Cleeves (Macmillan), The Murder Book by Mark Billingham (Little, Brown)
The Holy Island of Lindisfarne lies off the
Northumberland coast, a few minutes’ drive from Berwick-upon-Tweed. A causeway
links the island to the mainland. But there’s a catch: twice a day during high
tide the causeway is swamped. Get the timing wrong and you, and your car, will
be swept into the North Sea.
