From the cover: “Weaving fact and fiction into the fabric of an absorbing novel of adventure, Geoffrey Jenkins has written one of his most imaginative stories. One of the greatest maritime mysteries was the sinking without trace of the crack Blue Anchor liner ‘Waratah’ off the coast of South Africa in 1909. There were no survivors, no witnesses. In 1967 a Viscount airliner of the S.A. Airlines disappeared without trace or explanation at the very same spot. Exhaustive investigations by official bodies had been unable to produce any explanation for these two tragedies. Now Geoffrey Jenkins has linked them dramatically.
