Stretching for miles in the seas off the Scottish islands, the salmon killing nets are illegal. When a fishery protection patrol launch tries to arrest one salmon gang, it is promptly attacked and bombed by high-speed raider escort, then left barely afloat. Skipper Webb Carrick and his patrol launch Tern are ordered to investigate. On the day he arrives, the body of the previous Fishery Protection man is recovered from Port Torquil's harbour. There are more deaths as Carrick tries to penetrate the mystery. But the Drowning Nets also have their own startling secret - bigger than anything Carrick had imagined.
