About the Author

Alistair MacLean, the son of a Scots minister, was brought up in the Scottish Highlands. In 1941 he joined the Royal Navy. After the war he read English at Glasgow University and became a schoolmaster. The two and a half years he spent aboard a wartime cruiser were to give him the background for HMS Ulysses, his remarkably successful first novel, published in 1955. He is now recognised as one of the outstanding popular writers of the 20th century, the author of 29 worldwide bestsellers, many of which have been filmed.


'A fierce whodunit set on a rocket-proving island in the Pacific. Moves at jet pace' Oxford Mail 'As satisfying a saga of death, double-dealing and cloak-and-dagger work as I've read in a long time' Books and Bookmen
