About the Author

Alistair MacLean, the son of a Scots minister, was brought up in the Scottish Highlands. In 1941 he joined the Royal Navy. After the war he read English at Glasgow University and became a schoolmaster. The two and a half years he spent aboard a wartime cruiser were to give him the background for HMS Ulysses, his remarkably successful first novel, published in 1955. He is now recognized as one of the outstanding popular writers of the 20th century, the author of 29 worldwide bestsellers, many of which have been filmed.

I read many Alistair MacLean books when I was younger, and am happy to see them as nookbooks! This is a classic: nobody is ever what they seem in the beginning, and all is explained at the end. In between, a good adventure story with a few twists.

Alistair MacLean is one of my favorite authors. His first 14 books, "HMS Ulysses" through "Puppet on a Chain", are some of the best suspense books ever written: 5 Stars for all of them. The next 3 books, "Caravan to Vacarres", "Bear Island", & "The Way to a Dusty Death" are okay: 3-3.5 Stars. Of his remaining 12 books, I only enjoyed "River of Death" (3.5 Stars) and "The Lonely Sea" (5 Stars). If you're going to read this book, keep in mind it's not his best. I hope you enjoy it, but do yourself a favor and read the first 14 books he wrote. They are spectacular.

This MacLean offering just never got off the ground for me. Apart from the chase in Les Baux, the rest of the action, particularly the bullring scene in Mas de Lavignolle lacked any believability. Don't let this be your first MacLean novel -- he is better than this.
