Sail Away by Barrie Wigley

image001Bombs Away! Who’s Planting Explosives Aboard Ships at Sea?

Sail Away is literally an explosive novel. This charged thriller takes place aboard booby-trapped tanker ships at sea.

Brian Ridley is a third engineer in the British Merchant Navy who joins a tanker en route to Japan for a major refitting. Making it safely to port, he joins another tanker being dispatched by the same company. One day into the voyage, Brian is sent to inspect the forward emergency fire pump area, where he discovers what appears to be a bomb. Not sure whom he can trust, he feigns illness and is airlifted back to England.

Brian tells all to MI5 and is now assigned as an operative attached to British Secret Service. Dropped back onto the first tanker, he discovers yet another bomb planted aboard ship. Who is planting these explosives and why? Caught in a race against time, can he avert an explosive catastrophe at sea?

  1. Glynis – This certainly sounds like a turbo-charged thriller. And an on-board-ship setting can give a really good sense of both tension (i.e. feeling trapped) and the proverbial clock ticking. Thanks for sharing.

  2. At sea certainly sounds interesting!

  3. Sounds very intense, Glynis!
