Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item
In this career-spanning collection of short fiction, master storyteller and former Royal Navy seaman Alistair MacLean is truly in his element--writing about the sea and its power and about the men and women who sail it. MacLean's distinctive voice is evident from his very first, prize-winning short story, "The Dileas," and retains his characteristic dry humor and suspenseful pacing through every tale that follows. A gripping treasury of vintage MacLean, "The Lonely Sea" presents all his short works about the sea in one book for the first time, including two stories that were never published during his lifetime.
