Critic reviews

"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 Mirror)
"Mr Bagley has no equal at this sort of thing." ( Sunday Mirror)

old time adventure

I read this book many years ago around the era it was set. fully enjoyed the audio version which worked well as long as you think of it almost as a historical drama nowadays
