9780006153986: Wyatt's Hurricane

A West Indian meteorologist warns that a forthcoming hurricane will be more devastating than anything previously encountered. But rising civil unrest is distracting the locals too much for them to take any heed…

There is nothing abnormal about Hurricane Mabel except her ferocity; she should pass harmlessly amongst the islands of the Caribbean. But David Wyatt has developed a sixth sense about hurricanes. He is convinced that Mabel will change course to strike the island of San Fernandez and its capital, St Pierre.

But Wyatt can get nobody to believe him, and a hurricane is only one of the problems that threaten San Fernandez…

Review:

'A tautly written novel of adventure and suspense, packed with exhaustive detail. You will be out of breath when you finish it.' BOOKS AND BOOKMEN

'Brilliantly pictured episodes… sympathetically portrayed characters.' BIRMINGHAM POST

'As long as meticulous craftsmanship and honest entertainment are valued, and as long as action, authenticity, and expertise still make up the strong framework of the good adventure/thriller, Desmond Bagley's books will surely be read.' REGINALD HILL, Twentieth Century Crime and Mystery Writers

'Bagley is a master storyteller.' DAILY MIRROR
