Mr. Cullum, whose stories of the frozen north are so widely read and enjoyed, here turn to a tale of the sea where, like Conrad and Masefield, he labored in his youth as a sailor before the mast. Sheets in the Wind tells of Jock, talll red haired Scottish baronet, who sails around the horn on "The Witch", deep sea windjammer of Demon Line, in order to lay bare a drug smuggling enterprise. And meanwhile impetuous, brave Judy is captured by the chief smuggler and held in the vast caves below battlemented Grey Port, the smugglers' stronghold on the Scottish seacoast. Will Jock be able to reach her in time?
