As they are passing through the Caledonian Canal, a lock-gate bursts open and nearly puts an end to their boat and their lives. Is this an unlucky accident or attemptd murder?

Bjrn Larsson is a Swedish writer and sailor. He learned to sail on an engineless Folkboat and has lived on boats ever since. He made extensive sailing trips to the Celtic region featured in this book--Scotland, Ireland, Brittany and Northern Spain--which accounts for the immediacy and excitement of his writing. A bestseller in Sweden and successful in a number of European countries, The Celtic Ring has now been published in the U.S.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
"I believe," he said, "that we have stared ourselves blind at Pekka and MacDuff. I had taken for granted that Pekka was put out of the way because he knew too much. But about what? The IRA? Probably.

A cover name for the IRA, thought up by Pekka himself? Or a new and unknown branch in the terrorists' tree? There are many possibilities. And it would certainly be a risky business to investigate most of them. We can hardly doubt that Pekka took the matter too lightly. The question is whether he was murdered for some other reason as well. How much can he really have found out?"
