Provence: the annual pilgrimage to Saintes-Maries of gypsies from all over Europe. The Duc de Croytor, distinguished folklorist, is there and so is Englishman Neil Bowman. But there is something different about this year's pilgrimage. A small group of gypsies have something they are determined to hide, and Bowman soon learns that curiosity is highly dangerous.
From the terror of murder during the Provencal cours-libre in the bullring to an exciting action sequence out at sea, the pace builds up, the MacLean magic never falters.

Alistair MacLean, the son of a 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 teacher. Two and a half years spent aboard a wartime cruiser gave 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.Review:
'Even more action-packed than its predecessors' The Times
'The best MacLean since The Guns of Navarone. Gypsy caravans holding dark secrets, swarthy, murderous men, knives glinting in the moonlight. Alistair MacLean is a magnificent storyteller' Sunday Mirror
'The usual blend of MacLean magic... Murder, torture and intimidation follow each other in breathless succession to an exciting finale' Yorkshire Post
