My latest Kindle read

My latest Kindle read is "The Pull of The Tide" which I purchased off Amazon.  The author is Malachi Jones, who may also be found on the blog of Nb Willawaw.

A story from the heyday of the British shipping industry when we were still a maritime trading country. Quote: "It's 1936 and Mallory is the captain of a tramp ship. Up to his eyes in hock he takes his ship 'Aspatria' anywhere he can to make a quick buck. Crewed by reprobates like Macpherson the homicidal Gorbals bosun, Auntie Joan the transvestite third engineer and "Fingers" Nestorowicz the digit-deprived Polish cook in carpet slippers, the ship oil slicks its way around the salubrious coasts of the world, getting into one hilarious scrape after another. Join our gallant captain and his sea mongrels for a ripping yarn of adventure and romance on the high seas."
I will report back with a review.
