Reissue of the classic tale of war at sea, from the acclaimed master of action and suspense.

Suddenly, just before dawn, the lights went out aboard the San Andreas. For the British hospital ship sailing the deadly, U-boat patrolled Norwegian waters, a nightmare of violence and betrayal has begun. A terrifying game of sabotage in which an unknown traitor among the crew holds all the cards.

The red crosses on the vessel’s sides spell anything but safety. For a dangerous secret has turned the ship into a priceless quarry.

With the Captain out of action Bosun Archie McKinnon takes over. Alone in treacherous, frozen seas, her compass smashed, the San Andreas is being drawn relentlessly into the enemy’s hands.

About the Author:

Alistair MacLean, the son of a Scots 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 schoolmaster. The two and a half years he spent aboard a wartime cruiser were to give 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.

From Library Journal:

Veteran adventure and suspense writer MacLean returns to sea in his latest effort, which is set aboard the British hospital ship San Andreas en route from Halifax to Aberdeen during World War II. The first sign of trouble on board occurs when the ship's lights fail just before dawn. Then the vessel comes under a bombing attack that severely damages its superstructure and sinks its escort frigate. Bo's'n Archie McKinnon must take charge of the damaged ship and steer it to safety despite German aircraft, submarines, and sabotage. He must also learn the reason for German interest in the San Andreas . A tribute to the men of the British merchant fleet during World War II, this is for fans of the genre. Literary Guild featured alternate. William C. McCully, Park Ridge P.L., Ill.
