A novel based on the Scarborough tunny fishery in the 1930s. “Scarborough, 1934. John Fastolf, rakish heir to a dukedom, has sponsored a glamorous tunny-fishing contest. He has his reasons. The young journalist Martha Gellhorn is covering the event for the London gossip papers. She has hers. And quiet little Henny Rosefield has arrived in town with Zane Grey, bestselling author and expert mountain man of the Wild West.” Before the war, Scarborough really was an annual destination for the British Riviera set, and for American international big game fishermen. Many of the real names of the Scarborough set – Mitchell Hedges, Gellhorn (later wife of Ernest Hemingway) and Zane Grey amongst others – turn up in this fast-paced novel of crime and suspense. The book begins with our hero, Rudderick Drake, handcuffed to a bed by a shortly-to-be-murdered eighteen-year-old girl.
