'Taut, moody and suspenseful, Maritime entices with all the strange, mysterious properties of a dream. Peter Mews makes his debut with such style, wit and maturity, it's hard to believe this confident book is his first novel.' Robert Drewe 'A year ago or more I jumped on a plane...I was on my way to meet my wife. Though we were no longer married then. It should have been that simple. A couple reuniting.' A man with serious head injuries attempts to unravel the events which lead to his accident. He travels to London to retrieve his marriage, only to find his wife is having an affair and has possibly murdered her lover's rival. As the narrator descends into depression and obsession, his own madness makes the turth even more elusive. A tense and atmospheric novel which combines the poetry of great writing with the page turning quality of the best thrillers.
