A Twist of Sand

(1959)
A novel by

 
 
The south-west coast of Africa is known to sailors as the 'Skeleton Coast', on account of the number of wrecks it has claimed. It is not only the most dangerous coast in the world, but the most desolate - and potentially the richest.. During the war, fate had given Lieutenant Commander Peace, R.N. a key to this forbidden place. He had been briefed, in conditions of absolute secrecy, for a deadly game of hide-and-seek with a new type of U-boat so far in advance of its time that even the German High Command distrusted it. Years afterwards, still obsessed by his memories, he is drawn back there and once again he challenges the elements which have through the centuries kept the Skeleton Coast free from the intrusions of man.
