I once ran the day shift in a bar in Spain’s Costa del Sol. Here I met two brothers from East London, one of whom could knock out a donkey with his bare fist, and the other of whom did stuff that I cannot mention, except to say it was very illegal, indeed. There are a lot of boats there, huge amounts of money, and not much extradition.. The stories just fall into your lap.

When an elderly boatyard owner suddenly decides to go visiting on Spain’s Costa del Crime, there are those who say it is perfectly natural. His wife is not among them. She says it is right out of character, and asks her friend Martin Devereux, a twelve-meter sailor full of nothing but bad attitude, to investigate. And very soon after that, Martin is wishing he had never started….

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.
