All Bagley's books are fast paced and easy to read. Despite being several decades old they have not dated. ‘Mabel' is a strong and dangerous hurricane that should pass through a group of islands with minimal damage. Weather expert, David Wyatt, does not believe this will happen; he thinks Mabel will change course and pass through St Pierre the capital of San Fernandez. No one believes Wyatt and of course the tension builds as ‘Mabel' follows her chosen path. Needless to say there is more to this novel. A rebellion against the island's dictator complicates the already explosive situation.
