The brief paragraph on the front page of Lloyd's list of shipping news went pretty much unnoticed.
But there is one reader, Andrew Drake, senior clerk in a London firm of chartered shipbrokers, for whom that paragraph will have more than passing interest. As it turns out, the man discovered unconscious and near-dead in the Black Sea off the coast of Turkey is a refugee Ukrainian partisan.
Drake meets the survivor and suddenly finds he is party to international terror and intrigue.
"A good long -- possibly prophetic -- read, and exciting enough to make you sweat." (The Daily Mail)
