SynopsisIn the North Sea, a Royal Navy frigate fires a shot into the wheelhouse of a Soviet merchantman; the angry Russians close the Baltic. The freighter British Venturer – under its new captain, the unorthodox Brevet Cable – is sent in to force a showdown.
Or so Cable thinks. Only when he has been savaged by the Russian navy and contemptuously deported – without his ship – from an East German port, does he learn the unpleasant truth.
His seemingly innocent ship carries a deadly cargo. One he must get to before the Russians do . . .

Love, Love Me Do - Mark Haysom
An astonishing debut from Mark Haysom, Love, Love Me Do is set in 1963 - the year the Beatles first top the charts and the year Martin Luther King has a dream. It is utterly original, sweet and funny. Not one to pass by!
1963. Truman Bird moves his family from their Brighton home to a dilapidated caravan in the Ashdown Forest - then disappears. A charmer, a chancer, a liar - he's always got away with it, but now he only has one day to put things right... For Truman's wife, Christie, life has not turned out.
