*SHORTLISTED FOR THE COMMONWEALTH WRITERS' PRIZE*

From when he was twelve years old Robert Radnor had been in love with the idea of being a sailor. And a sailor he became, at home on the sea as other men were on land. Until the year of 1948, on board the steamship Golden Delta, serving as first officer under Captain Peeke, when Radnor's uncanny intuition about the sea and its ways suddenly deserts him and he finds himself alone with the sea, with his fear and with his terrifying foreknowledge.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This novel deserves to become a classic. * Telegraph *
Austin's masterly account of a tortured soul is matched only by his rich portrayal of the terrible, untameable ocean. * Guardian *
The briny sea in all its treacherous, glistening glory soaks through every page of this book... This is a superb novel that will be loved by all those who are drawn to the ocean. * Daily Mail *
An impressively accomplished compelling and haunting homage to forces beyond understanding or control. * Glasgow Herald *
A haunting work of literary fiction, this is an extraordinary first novel by a former seaman with a passion for his subject. * Choice *
