Publisher's Summary

The year: 1943. Now there was to be no more retreat for Britain and her Allies. At last the war was to be carried into enemy territory. And from captured bases and makeshift harbours in North Africa, the Royal Navy's Special Force was to be the probe and the spearhead of the advance.

To this unorthodox war came the corvette H. M. S. Thistle and her commanding officer, John Crispin. Both were veterans, she from the Atlantic, he from the trauma of seeing his last command and her company brutally destroyed.

Soon they would be fighting amongst remote Adriatic islands, helping the partisans and guerrillas with whom they had little in common except an overwhelming common hatred of the enemy who had attacked and destroyed their countries.

Ship and crew had to be welded into a single fighting unit. And it had to be done not in training but on active duty.

    "for armchair warriors "

    it was hard to put down and caused me to read others in the series which i also thoroughly enjoyed.
    D Reeman is a through and through navy man and D Rinyoul really btought it to life.

    Story
    "Another book I didn't enjoy."
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Probably more of a book for men than women. People who enjoy books about wars and fighting.


    Has To Risks Unknown put you off other books in this genre?

    Yes and no. I think it's in the wrong genre anyway. I think it should be in Millitary or Historical.


    What about David Rintoul’s performance did you like?

    I thought he read it well.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from To Risks Unknown?

    The sex scenes, though they weren't too graphic.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought this was an easier plot to follow than The Iron Pirate but still not my kind of book. also, 3 chapters are duplicated so the book is longer by roughly an hour and a half than it should be.
