'The blood of Adonis, thought Sarah, remembering the church that was built like a pagan temple. Coquelicot rouge - the symbol of a dying man whose blood stained the hillside in the spring.

'Sarah Lane, abandoning her French lover for the brilliant Lebanese sunshine, believes that the day will belong to her alone. But when a street bomb hurls her into the arms of a dangerously handsome Syrian colonel, she finds herself trapped once again. Is this a kidnapping? A seduction? Or merely the chaos of the Middle-East?'

1 y separately published work icon The Coast of Coral Arthur C. Clarke , New York (City) : Harper and Brothers , 1956 Z1808294 1956 single work prose travel 'Stretching for 1200 miles along the tropical coast of Australia, the Great Barrier Reef is the mightiest coral formation in the world. Arthur Clarke and Mike Wilson spent two adventurous years exploring the Reef - above and below water - and this book tells their story.

The Reef is a vast range of "underwater mountains", whose shifting moods strike terror in the hearts of sailors and can spell death for the careless diver. But the bizarre and challenging spectacles were irresistible to Clarke and Wilson: they saw the dreaded stonefish and the giant manta ray, the lovely fire fish, and the Australian shark, which unlike its relatives elsewhere, is a genuine maneater.

Their report - illustrated with rare underwater photographs - gives us our first look into a region of mystery, of boundless beauty and danger, one of the last and most intriguing unexplored frontiers on our planet.' (Source: back cover, Harper and Row, 1965 edition)

'A baleful game of blind man's buff engages Ian Kane, a coincidental witness to the evidence of murder who then loses his eyesight in an accident and becomes the helpless target of his pursuant. His sullen fears and morbid fantasies become real when he is moved from the hospital to a rest home, loses his nurse en route, and is then the prisoner of his enemies. His escape, in bandages, is painful and almost helpless until he removes them, regains his vision and finally his freedom...'
