A hazardous expedition to a remote Pacific atoll leads to a violent confrontation far from civilization…
The seas and its secrets always fascinated the Trevelyan brothers, and it was on an expedition to a remote Pacific atoll that Mark died - a natural death, Mike is told. Though there was no love lost between the brothers, the circumstances surrounding Mark's death are suspicious enough to force Mike to investigate - even without the series of violent attacks on him that followed.
There are just two clues - a notebook in code and a lump of rock - enough to trigger off a hazardous expedition, and a violent confrontation far from civilization…

'Bagley is one of the best.' THE TIMES
'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 MIRRORAbout the Author:
Desmond Bagley wrote 16 novels, becoming one of the world's top-selling authors, with his books translated into more than 30 languages. He was born in 1923 in Kendal and brought up in Blackpool, beginning his working life, aged 14, in the printing industry. After working in an aircraft factory during the Second World War, he decided to travel, working his way through Europe and southern Africa, and in 1951 joined the gold mining industry before becoming a freelance journalist in Johannesburg, where he wrote his first novel, The Golden Keel, in 1962. In 1964 he returned to England, finally settling in Guernsey with his wife, where he died in 1983.
