"requite (verb): to return love and affection or, on the other side of the coin, to retaliate for injuries inflicted.

MALTA 1941. Eleven-year-old Joe Zarb's life is about to change. The war has created a rubble-strewn, dogfight-watching, soldier-saluting adventure, until a telegram arrives with news of his papa, Victor, that will shatter everything.

Twenty years later, with Malta seeking independence from the British Empire, a nurse and a former RAF pilot travel to the island. Beth is looking for Joe, the son of her wartime husband, Victor. Her companion, Stuart, is seeking revenge for the horrific burns he suffered in the war.

When they find Joe and a man purporting to be his papa, a chain of events is set in motion that sheds new light on what happened two decades before...

Praise for 'Man At Sea':

"Intimate and expansive, this tantalising thriller pulses with mysteries, secrets, and surprises. Man at Sea is both timely and historical, at once rich in implication and action. Like the sea itself the story is swift, deep, exhilarating, and ultimately unpredictable." - Kevin MacNeil, Award-winning novelist and Lecturer in Creative Writing, University of Stirling"

MEDIA REVIEWS

Intimate and expansive, this tantalising thriller pulses with mysteries, secrets, and surprises. Man at Sea is both timely and historical, at once rich in implication and action. Like the sea itself the story is swift, deep, exhilarating, and ultimately unpredictable.- Kevin MacNeil, author of The Brilliant and Forever; "A rich exploration of identity, war and sacrifice. Poignant and beautifully written." - Rachelle Atalla, author of The Pharmacist; "In this beguiling book, Liam Bell deftly brings together two parallel worlds. In one, the scars of war are healing. In the other, revenge waits, patiently, ticking like a bomb." - Dr Mandy Haggith,author of the Stone Stories Trilogy
