A brilliant book that had me gripped from the start. Well written and the attention to detail sets the scene perfectly. I am very much looking forward to MP Miles next book.

I wont go into detail about the story as i dont want to spoil the book, i see so many reviews that give 80% of the story away and it spoils it for the reader in my opinion. I loved this book, I enjoyed the story and i felt connected with the characters. One of my favourite books this year in fact. The story was a real page turner and infact my other half kept needing to tell me to put it down and go to sleep, I was gripped. Pleaseantly surprised and brilliantly written, a must read for sure.
MP Miles is from a small town in Dorset. Aged eighteen he escaped, and walked alone through Africa from Cape Town to Cairo, the subject of much of his novel Shelter Rock. After studying agriculture he farmed sheep and potatoes in England and Portugal before travelling the world buying and selling fresh produce, brilliant 'living cover' had he been spying for an Intelligence Service. He is a pilot, a diving instructor, and an award-winning chef. Mark started writing fiction four years ago, having for many years written sailing book reviews and yacht test reports (think Jeremy Clarkson of boats). A lifelong sailor he spends as much time as he can in the Caribbean with his girlfriend on-board a yacht called Pacific Wave.
