Description
Executed in 1922 for his involvement in Irish republicanism, Erskine Childers is most remembered today for this groundbreaking 1903 classic of spy fiction, "the first modern thriller" (Times, London). In a story set during the long suspicious years leading up to World War I, a young man accepts an invitation to join a friend on a sailing holiday in the Baltic. But what begins as an exploration of the mysteries of seamanship becomes a gripping suspense as these two young adventurers discover a German plot to invade England via the Frisian Islands of the North Sea.

"A thriller anticipating Frederick Forsyth and Len Deighton ... [that] never loses pace."Independent on Sunday
