A ship's captain is found hanged in his cabin: suicide or murder?
Marine claims investigator Angus McKinnon is assigned to the case, but when he discovers a falsely declared cargo of military equipment in the ship's holds, alarm bells start ringing in the intelligence world.
What looked routine becomes a perilous mission to thwart a coup d'état that threatens to pit two global superpowers against one another, while a secretive bank with Nazi gold glimmering darkly inits vaults attempts to derail the investigation.
From the Atlantic Ocean to the jungles of West Africa and a final showdown in the vast emptiness of the Sahara, McKinnon must bring down a psychopathic war criminal and those playing him as their proxy.
I too have now completed the Angus McKinnon trilogy and, as a reviewer above has said, they get better and better. Like the previous two, Black Reef covers a tremendously wide geographical canvas written with Nick Elliott's intimate knowledge of those parts of the world together with the people who live there. So the book is fascinating on that count alone; add the breadth of the story, the excitement and suspense at almost every page and the quality of the writing and you have an action thriller amongst the very best. This book stands alone from the previous two, but if you haven't read them yet - do!
