The Silence Of The Sea by Yrsa Sigurðardóttir
A luxury yacht arrives in Reykjavík harbour with nobody on board. What has happened to the crew, and to the family who were on board when it left Lisbon? Thora Gudmundsdottir is hired by the young father's parents to investigate, and is soon drawn deeper into the mystery. What should she make of the rumours saying that the vessel was cursed, especially given that when she boards the yacht she thinks she sees one of the missing twins? Where is the glamorous young wife of the yacht's former owner? And whose is the body that has washed up further along the shore?
