When the luxury cruiser, hastily named Great Britain, berths in Kinloch harbour, the pressure is on DCI Jim Daley. The UK Government are taking a high powered group of businessmen and women on a tour of the British isles, golfing and seeing the sights, as part of a push for global trade. But when one of the crew goes missing, and an elderly local ornithologist disappears, will the pressure become too great? The arrival of a face from the past sends Daley's world into a tailspin. And the lives of the passengers and crew of SS Great Britain, as well as the country's economic future are in jeopardy.
