About this deal

His real mission is to deliver the Jay Treaty, a document of great importance to the peace between the US and Britain. The narrative is shared between Laurence Jago’s reports and those of the ship’s captain, which are short, to the point but strangely revealing. The new page-turning historical mystery from the author of BLACK DROP, a 2021 TIMES Book of the Year. You will hear as many accounts of this voyage as there are passengers aboard but I think it my duty to give my own report, to counter the wilder stories you will no doubt receive in good time.

However, when the civil servant meets an unfortunate - and supposedly accidental - end and the treaty disappears, Laurence realises only he can now prevent war with the US.With President Eisenhower due to pay his first state visit, Rose, who had a hand in the assassination of “the Leader” a couple of years earlier and is surprised to be still at liberty, is tasked with meeting Queen Wallis for a background briefing. The chapters of Jago’s report are interspersed with snippets from the Captain’s log and newspaper articles from Philpott, the journalist who Jago is assisting.

Blue Water is a mystery with sea salt running through its veins and the whiff of ozone and intrigue emanating from every page.

Meanwhile, in the hope of redeeming himself he is compiling a report to Foreign Secretary Lord Grenville in Downing Street.

It’s December 1794 and former government clerk Laurence Jago has just left Britain aboard the packet ship Tankerville.

I would definitely recommend this to fans of historical fiction and a classic “who done it” Murder mystery!
