9780006174530: Santorini

Reissue of the gripping tale of sabotage at sea, from the acclaimed master of action and suspense.

In the heart of the Aegean Sea, a luxury yacht is on fire and sinking fast. Minutes later, a four-engined jet with a fire in its nose-cone crashes into the sea.

Is there a sinister connection between these two tragedies? And is it an accident that the Ariadne, a NATO spy ship, is the only vessel in the vicinity - the only witness?

Only Commander Talbot of the Ariadne can provide the answers as he uncovers a deadly plot involving drugs and terrorism - leading to the heart of the Pentagon.

From the Inside Flap:

An eighty-foot yacht suddenly capsizes in the Aegean, leaving only six survivors. Then, minutes later, in the same area, an unidentified four-engine jet crashes into the sea. Are these twin disasters more than coincidence?
Commander Talbot and the crew of the HMS Ariadne are assigned to retrieve from the ocean floor the jet's volatile cargo: atomic and hydrogen weaponry with the force to destroy millions. As the delicate operation proceeds, Talbot finds himself trapped in a whirl of nightmarish events involving terrorism and drugs -- and a diabolic plot that leads straight to the Pentagon.

About the Author:

Alistair MacLean, the son of a Scots minister, was brought up in the Scottish Highlands. In 1941 he joined the Royal Navy. After the war he read English at Glasgow University and became a schoolmaster. The two and a half years he spent aboard a wartime cruiser were to give him the background for HMS Ulysses, his remarkably successful first novel, published in 1955. He is now recognized as one of the outstanding popular writers of the 20th century, the author of 29 worldwide bestsellers, many of which have been filmed.
