This story is a well paced narrative that follows the crew of a luxury yacht that has been hijacked off Somalia – contemporary and relevant. The privileged surroundings at the outset gradually deteriorate into a claustrophobic dystopia. The story touches on big and important issues – luxury, poverty, power and impotence. Reading it made me think again about terrorism and global inequality. Add to this guest appearances by a Scrabble board and a mysteriously moving dugong. A different and interesting read!

This is a good contemporary novel which keeps you interested from the beginning. Although a lot of the plot takes place on the hijacked boat, the author doesn't let the pace slip. There are some likable characters, and although it got a bit grim in a couple of places (for me! I'm very easily disturbed), all the action and description was really well written. Definitely worth a read and I'll look at more of her books.

A tale of contemporary interest, requiring the reader to examine their own view and attitude to certain world events. An good story to read before seeing the film Captain Phillips and then to read again afterwards! A fast moving and unfolding drama, neatly tied up at the end but leaving the reader wondering what happens next. As a successful novel should.
