About this title

Synopsis:

To the spectators sitting in the Florida courtroom, it was quite evident that the redheaded British soldier who called himself Chrysler wasn't going to admit his past. Being tried for illegal entry and recognized as the presumably deceased John Mantague Talbot, he suddenly halted the proceedings by pulling out a gun and shooting an officer. Kidnaping a girl, Talbot then dashed out of the courthouse and forced his captive into a parked police car. Thus began a wild ride down the Florida coast that enentually led Talbot ot a gang of thugs who were carrying out a mysterious salvage operation from an oil rig located several miles off shore in the Gulf of Mexico. A "magnificently robust and exiting novel of adventure.

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. He died in 1987.
