Latest crime thriller from Roderic Jeffries - writing as Jeffrey Ashford. Meet DC Helen Ryan as she untangles the mystery of Captain Sewell's violent death aboard the cargo ship, Hakota. Good solid policework - and cleverly interleaved sub-plots - keeps everyone on their toes. Another winner by a master storyteller.

Did you know this author has now written 143 books, with another due out in July! I first became aquainted as a boy when I read his very first novel 'Brandy Ahoy' (written in 1951!). He wrote that under the pseudonym Roderic Graeme - also used for the famous detective series with the character Blackshirt. Today he writes under his own name - the Inspector Alvarez series - and as Jeffrey Ashford. A tour de force in crime writing - and deserves a wider readership today.
