Three children are spending their summer on a wild Scottish island. Fraser is desperate for adventure; Hayley is fed up she’s even there; while Dunny spends his days staring out to sea. He hasn’t said a word in years.
But everything changes with the discovery of two bodies on the beach: a whale and a man. Fraser and Hayley see a mystery-adventure to be solved, but Dunny is inconsolable. And in the end, it will take someone who listens to the sea to put it right.

WINNER OF THE TIMES/CHICKEN HOUSE CHILDREN'S FICTION COMPETITION 2014

Walls of black water rose on either side of the boat as it dropped through a crack in the sea. In the wheelhouse Fraser Dunbar clung to an old wooden chart table and waited for those walls to collapse and send him to the bottom.
