Rogue Wave. By Jane Thornley. Suspense. My Review

Unemployed textile artist Phoebe McCabe wants desperately to find her missing brother and to knit the fraying edges of her life together, so when her godfather ,Max Baker , asks her help to track
 Toby´s last steps in Bermuda, she can´t refuse. 
Only Max , an arts and antiques dealer , isn´t telling the whole story, nor is her father, whose deteriorating dementia hides a family secret that has stymied her since childhood. Phoebe agrees to enter the estate of a Bermudian fiction author on a ruse in order to untangle the knots of her brother´s 
hidden life , but nothing and no-one are who they seem , and the stakes are smeared in blood.
Surrounded by thieves and killers Phoebe pitches herself against the treacherous beauty of an island, as well as all the perilous greed of the human heart.
Sunken treasure , betrayal, and heartbreak plunge her closer to her missing brother, but what she discovers in the end not only shocks her world , but changes her view of everyone in it , including herself.

This book has more twists and turns than a cable knit sweater. When you read the story you will understand the knitting reference.  Our heroine Phoebe is obsessed with knitting and colourful fabrics of all sorts.
Phoebe's brother has gone missing.  He was involved in a treasure hunting scheme ,but which side is or was he on?  In her search for her brother Phoebe gets drawn into things that are well beyond her comfort zone. She doesn't know who she can trust.
We have many men in this story, but no hero. There is mystery,  adventure and danger, and for me lots of confusion.  Like our heroine I didn't know what was going to happen from one page to the next. Really good fun.
