9780955486814: The Man Who Caught Crippen

Henry Kendall went to sea as a cabin boy at the age of 15. By the time he was 32 he was the captain of an Atlantic liner, and in 1910 shot to fame when he sent a celebrated wireless transmission from the SS Montrose, as she headed out into the Atlantic Ocean: "Have strong suspicions that Crippen, London cellar murderer and accomplice, are among saloon passengers." The message sparked off an extraordinary chase as Inspector Walter Dew of Scotland Yard raced by train to Liverpool, boarded a fast ship to Canada, aiming to arrive before the Montrose, to arrest Dr Crippen. The world watched the drama unfold as the power of wireless communication in law enforcement was proved for the first time. Four years later Kendall was the commander of the RMS Empress of Ireland when she was hit and sunk by a Norwegian coal freighter in the St Lawrence estuary. There were 1,012 lives lost but, by a quirk of fate, Kendall lived. During his life he survived attempted murder, shipwrecks, torpedoes, icebergs, scorpion bites, cannibals, sharks, fevers, flying bombs and even a marauding leopard. Kendall's amazing life is told by Joe Saward, the author of the best-selling "Grand Prix Saboteurs". Four years after Crippen's arrest, Kendall was in command of the RMS Empress of Ireland when she was sunk by a Norwegian coal freighter. There were 1,012 lives lost that night but - by a quirk of fate - Kendall survived. These extraordinary stories are told by the author of best-selling "Grand Prix Saboteurs".

From the Author:

Joe Saward is a journalist and writer. He began his career working in motorsport, travelling from race to race around Europe, before joining Autosport magazine in London. A pioneer in the new electronic media he created the award-winning "Business of Motorsport" electronic newsletter in 1994, the grandprix.com website and Grand Prix +, motorsport's first e-magazine. He now runs his own F1 blog. In 2007 he published "The Grand Prix Saboteurs", the untold true story of motor racing stars who became British secret agents fighting with the French Resistance during World War II. He was named Author of the Year by the Guild of Motoring Writers.

From the Back Cover:

What the reviewers said about 
The Grand Prix Saboteurs 

"I could not put the book down, and having now finished it, I wish it had gone on longer." - International Herald Tribune
 
"A cracking story. A tale of derring-do and chivalry on the racetracks of yore, of romance against the glamorous backdrops of 1920s Paris and Monaco, and of heroism and tragedy behind the lines in World War Two. The Grand Prix Saboteurs is history, but it reads like a series of screenplays crammed with compelling characters."  - Daily Telegraph
