Stanley Blackster had once been a hero to his son Gram, back in the days when he right as usual - he'd let things drift. But now Insidiator was to be screened again, and he would take decisive action. A family expedition to the fabled paradise islands of the Papalinas would surely put things right. The Barracuda had long wanted to visit this place from his past, and he would at last dive on a coral reef with Gram. Certain firmly submerged incidents were becoming restless, but the Blacksters would not be straying from the sun, the sand and the surf. Tsaramaso Atoll would be at a safe range of several hundred sea miles and Stanley would make sure it stayed that way. Of course he would. Even now Tsaramaso was a place undiscovered by the world, a place of mangrove forest and steaming heat, of reptiles and sharks, of teeming reef fishes and sweating black nights, ancestral home of the malevolent Boniface clan and their old, eerie notions of power. The very last place for a family holiday.
