And To My Nephew Albert I Leave The Island What I Won Off Fatty Hagan In A Poker Game

(1969)
A novel by

 
Foul Rock is a tiny speck only seventy meters wide and one hundred and forty meters long, just off the coast of England.

When he first sets foot on his inheritance, Albert quickly realises that there is absolutely nothing there, nothing except for the frequent presence of Victoria, a very attractive young girl in search of a suntan.

Just as the two are getting to know each other better, a Russian trawler (spy ship) runs aground on the Island.

The other side of the Island is soon occupied by the United States Marines and Victoria and Albert find themselves caught up in a precarious and hilarious Cold War stand off.

And to My Nephew Albert...is a classic satire from the author(s) of The Great Dinosaur Robbery and After Me, The Deluge.
