Four classic tales of adventure at sea, from the master of action and suspense, available for the first time in this e-bundle. Discover why Alistair MacLean was the most popular thriller writer of his generation in these four classic stories of the sea, from the treacherous frozen seas of the north Atlantic, to the warmer but no less deadly waters of the Caribbean and Mediterranean. San Andreas – For a British hospital ship sailing deadly U-boat patrolled Norwegian waters, a nightmare of violence and betrayal has begun, a nerve-shredding game of sabotage in which an unknown traitor among the crew holds all the cards and who is determined to drive the San Andreas into the enemy’s hands. The Golden Rendezvous – For Johnny Carter, Chief Officer on the SS Campari, the luxury cruise begins badly before getting much worse. Mounting tension on the ship explodes into violence as modern-day pirates move in for the kill. But this is no mere hijacking. Their target is a fortune in gold bullion; and their weapon is a nuclear time-bomb… Seawitch – The massive oil-rig is the hub of a great empire and the pride of its ruthless billionaire owner, Lord Worth. Worth cares about only two things: Seawitch and his two daughters. One man knows this: John Cronkite, troubleshooter for the world’s top oilmen and Worth’s former victim. Cronkite wants revenge and during one terrifying week Worth’s world will explode. Santorini – In the Aegean Sea a luxury yacht is on fire; minutes later a four-engine jet crashes into the sea. Is there a connection, and is it an accident that a NATO ship is the only witness? Only Commander Talbot can provide the answers as he uncovers a deadly plot involving terrorism and drugs which leads him right to the heart of the Pentagon.

Alistair MacLean, the son of a minister, was brought up in the Scottish Highlands. In 1941 he joined the Royal Navy. After the war he read English at Glasgow University and became a teacher. Two and a half years spent aboard a wartime cruiser gave him the background for HMS Ulysses, his remarkably successful first novel, published in 1955. He is now recognized as one of the outstanding popular writers of the 20th century, the author of 29 worldwide bestsellers, many of which have been filmed.
