SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 4 GB MP3 Player - Black (SDMX1&hellip by SanDisk
I've had two of these, the first unfortunately going into the washing machine just days after it was purchased, thus I bought a second.

It appears from reviews here and elsewhere that buying this you take pot luck. It may be fantastic and work well for years...... or you may be like me, and have nothing but trouble. First the good though:

I have read it many times - my original copy has had to be replaced it was so well read - and know the story well, but still return to it regularly. For me, it remains an absolute page turner, and a book I could easily read in a single sitting.

The story opens with the location of a WW2 merchant ship, the MV Cyclops, by a Royal Navy survey vessel in the natural harbour of a remote island in the south Atlantic. Records show that the ship had been reported as sunk in WW2, several hundred miles from where it rides at anchor. Furthermore, it is accompanied by a WW2 U-boat and the remains of a… Read more
