What begins as a quiet day of fishing, with 16-year-old Sven Klakk enviously watching the men using fleygs (fowling nets) to catch birds on the cliffs high above him, ends in a tumult of suspense and terror.
A force 10 gale; a damaged ship in danger of smashing up on the rocks of the island most of the crew call home; a handful of women, old men, and one 16-year-old boy, to rescue the desperately helpless men....
Then, when it seems impossible for things to get any worse than they already are - they do!
Arthur Catherall, a master of suspense, once again skillfully weaves an authentic tale of courage and suspense.
