I read Innes's The Wreck of the Mary Deare on 31 May 1998 and was so impressed by it that I thought I should read something more by him. This isnot as good a book as that, but it does have an exciting finish. It deals with an oil rig near the Shetland Islands, and is full of technical authenticity, as well as good descriptions of the Shetland area. The central character is not too admirable a man but one is yet hopeful he will suvive the awful storm which concludes the book. The book has good things to be said for it but it did not live up to my hopes.
