Review:

"Excellent...his expertise with volcanoes, avalanches, cave-ins and fire at sea is beyond question" ( Guardian)

"Here is one of the sheerly enjoyable reading experiences of the year" ( New York Times)

"Seamanship, storms, tension galore, money talk and a decent minimum of love - what more could one ask?" ( The Bookman magazine)

"Yes! A rip-roarer...those action sequences at which he is so brilliant, the equatorial heat, the bubbling sea-bed, an outworn ship and a drunken skipper - splendid!" ( Evening Standard)
