AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Italian cut-throats are imprisoned on a yacht by a young English woman cruising the Mediterranean with her husband. She is left virtually alone on Christmas Eve when he dines with the British Vice-Consul - only a few sailors remain aboard in their own quarters and her dog has his throat cut. 'The fighting blood of a wild border strain runs hotly in her veins.' Light. (PB)
