They dismissed the Mary Deare as 'a piece of leaking ironmongery taken off the junk heap'. For 40 years this 6,000-ton freighter had tramped the seas, suffered shipwreck twice, and been torpedoed three times in two world wars. Then one March night, battered and bruised and empty, she emerged from severe Biscay gales into the English Channel - and into the newspaper headlines. Here was a ship of mystery and tragedy... in one of the greatest sea stories of all time.

    " A tale that keeps you gripped. great story teller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maxine | 12/7/2013

    " A rather haunting sea faring tale, takes a while for the story to unravel and the courtroom drama bored me a bit. However, it's very atmospheric and full of tension, and I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roger | 9/11/2013

    " TRAPPED on a seemingly abandoned hulk with a madman! Rising suspense. Powerful climax. Reminiscent of Conrad, Forester, Jennings, Kent, and Laing. "

    " Innes knows his ships and the sea. Good adventure read. "

    " I never thought that I would like sea stories, but I loved this one, and after reading it I began picking up sea adventures. I don't recall much of this book, but it was good enough to keep to own after I read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Sammis | 5/25/2012

    " Good ghost story. Sort of X-Files-ish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 5/22/2012

    " Entertaining thriller that has the statutory happy ending. The villains get their come uppance. The hero survives and gets a successful business out if it. The anti hero turns out to be another hero, and gets the girl. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 2/10/2012

    " I had a hard time following this one. I think you really need to be a sailor to appreciate what's going on. It seemed to just go on and on. I don't know if I will give this author another try or not. "

    " The only way I can describe the experience of reading any Hammond Innes book is to say it feels like I'm reading a 1950's black & white movie. A very good black & white movie. "

    " For ocean buffs, it starts and ends well. The middle, courtroom section, was almost too long but length was good overall. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 7/20/2011

    " Not one of Innes' best. Pretty average thriller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pippa Mattinson | 6/20/2011

    " A timeless, quality novel. "

    " Read this years ago but remember liking it very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philip | 5/5/2011

    " I didn't get too far with this one when I first tried it some years back, but on impulse decided to have another go at it. The second time seems like the charm; even though I'm completely at sea when it comes to all the nautical terminology, this is an engrossing suspense/adventure yarn. "
