Michael Walters is having
problems in his boatyard, centring round Quadra,
the yacht he’s restoring for attractive Irishwoman Clare O’Dwyer. Soon they’re
on the run, with a number of unscrupulous people close behind ...
action thriller is set at the time of the Northern Ireland Peace Agreement, and
is focused on dangerous papers from the time of the Irish Rebellion that have
been hidden by Clare’s grandfather ‘in the boat’. In the classic race against
time, Clare and Michael need to find the yacht’s secret before the imposing
array of forces after them: MI5, led by Clare’s unscrupulous aunt, MI6, the
