From a master of maritime adventure and suspense comes an engrossing and alarming tale of disaster on a North Sea ferry. The passengers boarding the Orion Venturer have idea that the sturdy-looking ferry that is to take them across the North Sea is a disaster waiting to happen. She has been hastily converted from her previous role as a casi ship working out of Florida. Safety regulations have been met - in theory - but many vital corners have been cut. And, worse, her multinational crew has been put together even more quickly. Many crew members have experience at sea and little kwledge of English. Few kw the ship well eugh to be of any use in an emergency. All it would take is one act of folly to initiate a tragedy too terrible to imagine...Filled with tension that builds with every passing second, Ferry Down is the new thriller from Britain's most acclaimed writer of maritime adventure - the disturbingly plausible realisation of every sea traveller's nightmare.
