Antony Trew With chilling plausibility, Antony Trew describes how a group of ultra-millitant terrorists - disavowed by Yasir.

On a wintry November morning, both the Prime Minister in Downing Street and the US Ambassador in Grosvenor Square receive an appalling ultimatum - a nuclear device, concealed somewhere in London, will be detonated within 72 hours unless the British and United States governments accede unequivocally to teh demand for an independent Palestine.

Forty-seven yachts crossed the starting line for the GBP 100,000 Tristar, the first single-handed ocean race to be held in the northern winter - 8,000 miles of sailing from Plymouth to the Azores, the West Indies, Newfoundland and back to Plymouth. To compete, Martin Savage gave up everything - left his job, sold his house, pledged himself to the hilt and lost his girl friend. But he was on the way to achieving his greatest ambition. Forty hours out at sea, hove-to in a gale, he found he had a stowaway, a girl in flight from an unhappy love affair

Sailing buffs, however, may put up with the dreary psycho-drama for the sake of the race action, which Trew (Death of a Supertanker, et. handles efficiently. Pub Date: March 27th, 1981. Publisher: St. Martin's.

The Tristar is the first single-handed ocean race to be held in the northern winter, its course running 8,000 miles from Plymouth to the Azores, the West Indies, Newfoundland, and back. To compete, Martin Savage gave up everything: he left his job, sold his house, pledged himself to the hilt, and lost his girlfriend in the process. But with his yacht in top shape, he finds himself on the way to achieving his greatest ambition. After the race has begun, however, he discovers a stowaway, a girl in flight from an unhappy love affair. He was no longer single-handed, and if she was discovered he would be disqualified. Is she prisoner or ally? Did he want her dead or alive? As the race wears on Savage's chances improve, the stakes grow higher, and the tension on board reaches a breaking point.

A good sail tale with a very unsual plot line.
I enjoyed the psychological tension that was a counfer point to the battle of sea.
I look toward to another tale from this author.
