Review:

‘There can be no better adventure writer in the country.’
Alistair MacLean

Daily Telegraph

‘No mistake: Callison can grip you... he whirls the exciting action forward with a masterly touch.’
Wall Street Journal

From the Back Cover:

The passengers boarding the 'Orion Venturer' have no idea that the sturdy-looking ferry that is to take them on the twenty-four-hour voyage across the North Sea from Britain to Sweden is a disaster waiting to happen.

Sailing under a flag of convenience, she has been hastily converted by her new owners, having spent the last twenty years as a casino ship working out of Florida. Safety regulations have been met – in theory – but many vital corners have been cut.

Worse, her multinational crew has been put together even more quickly – and cheaply. Many crew members have no experience at sea and little knowledge of English. Few have had time to familiarise themselves with the ship well enough to be of any use in an emergency.

All it would take is one act of folly to initiate a chain of events leading to a maritime tragedy too terrible to imagine...

Filled with tension that builds with every passing second, 'Ferry Down' is the relentlessly fast-moving new thriller from one of Britain's most acclaimed writers of maritime adventure – the vivid and disturbingly plausible realisation of every sea traveller's nightmare.
