9780006126379: Strode Venturer

What could link the slick world of London boardrooms, an isolated island race in the Maldives and the mysterious voyages of a battered ship skippered by a brooding alcoholic? It falls to Geoffrey Bailey to unlock the mystery, but first he must overcome both family tragedy and the unpredictable treacheries of land, sea and big business.

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)

Book Description:

A fast-moving, suspenseful tale that combines boardroom intrigues with seafaring adventures, from the author of The Wreck of the Mary Deare
