Autumn in the Archipelago between Stockholm and Turku in the Baltic. Millions of birds are migrating,, elks swim among the thousands of islands, and the Finns are picking mushrooms, some of which are not toxic. It is a beautiful, mysterious place to sail.

The Tall Ships are gathered at Chatham, in the Thames Estuary, for their annual race. Vixen, owned by ex war correspondent Bill Tyrrell, has eight young offenders on board, for the good of their souls. In the middle of the celebrations, they discover a ninth person – a dead Russian, wrapped round the propellor. There is plenty of explaining to do. But nobody is listening to Tyrrell’s explanations, particularly when his past starts messing up the present…

About Sam Llewellyn

Sam Llewellyn - One of Britain's Great Storytellers.

Sam Llewellyn was born on Tresco, Isles of Scilly, thirty miles west of Land’s End, Britain’s southwesternmost point. He was brought up between the coast road and the sea in North Norfolk.

He is married to the prizewinning Canadian children’s author Karen Wallace. They live in a medieval farmhouse in Herefordshire, England’s wildest and most beautiful county. He owns an electric bike, a fifty-year-old guitar, and several boats, in which he spends months every year sailing in the North Atlantic. He believes that telling stories is the summit of human achievement, and that the existence of humanity on Earth is a story, and that the story deserves a happy ending.

Since 2010 he has been the Editor of the Marine Quarterly, a journal of the sea. The object of the MQ is to print stories and articles about the sea as it is seen from the sea, and the parts of the land visible from the sea.

He writes a novel most years. He also writes for the Daily Telegraph, is a columnist for Practical Boat Owner, Classic Boat, Hortus and Broad Sheep magazines and the RYA website, and is a sought-after public speaker.
