The real essence of the challenge of open water swimming has been woven into a finely crafted suspense novel.
Mark Richards, one of only three long distance swimmers to have completed the swim between Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
The swimming sections really connected with me. They brought home the immense power of the sea and the huge mental and physical challenges involved in marathon swimming.
Vicky Middlemast, who swum the English Channel in eleven hours and seven minutes in 2014 and the North Channel between Ireland and Scotland in twelve hours and six minutes in 2015.
A conventional middle-aged woman has a passionate affair, becomes embroiled in fraud and makes the desperate decision to risk all in the hope of disappearing. J.H.Mann has lovingly evoked the Cornish landscape, from the wild Atlantic coast to the bleak and threatening moors, as the setting for a gripping thriller. I loved it.
