'For excitement, elegance and sheer virtuosity, Llewellyn's books sail rings round the competition' Literary Review
'A new Llewellyn thriller is a cause for celebration... for lovers of his writing style and humour there are treats in every paragraph. I read it twice.' Yachting Monthly
Sam Llewellyn is Britain's favourite writer of marine thrillers. Singlehand, his first new book for seven years, is just published and available only from www.bookharbour.com. His early books have been translated into twelve languages and continue to be big sellers.
Singlehand is the second of two mysteries set on (and off) the west coasts of Britain, featuring the Olympic sailor, reprobate and occasional yacht broker Gavin Chance. The first of the two, Black Fish, is a nail-biting yarn of skulduggery by land and sea, complicated by Gavin's thirst for spirits.
In Singlehand Gavin has given up whisky. It is therefore unfortunate that he finds himself in possession of a shipload of the stuff, all of it stolen, pursued by the police forces of two countries and some deeply horrible Russians through a range of difficulties including kidnap, murder, storm and shipwreck. Will he sail free of this lot? One thing is for sure: if he does, he is going to get very wet in the process. Singlehand is a great read, firmly in the ever-popular Llewellyn tradition.
