Synopsis

Phillip Vivian finds himself trapped in a treacherous web of violence in this enthralling novel classic from the master of the modern sea story, Douglas Reeman; he has also written over twenty bestselling novels featuring Richard Bolitho, under the pseudonym Alexander Kent.



With his own boat, the motor yacht Sea Fox, former naval officer Philip Vivian had hoped to earn a living free from the petty restrictions of everyday life, close to the sea he loved.Now, however, his dream is threatened by financial difficulties. So when a profitable, if legally dubious, proposition is put to him by an old naval comrade in arms, Vivian is willing to listen.But what starts out as a harmless adventure soon turns into something altogether more sinister. And Vivian finds himself trapped in a treacherous web of violence and crime, dangerously torn between his stubborn sense of past loyalties and his duty to a society he has always despised.
