    Hammond Innes was a thriller writer of the great British post war generation along with Desmond Bagley Gavin Lyall and others This is a salt encrusted sea story about a couple of British army enlisted men assigned to guard a shipment of silver being shipped to the UK from Murmansk on a creaky old freighter in the late days of the Second World War The ship's captain is a sinister Shakespeare uoting loony the warrant officer in charge of the guard detachment is a weak kneed drunk and when a storm hits and the lifeboats turn out to have been sabotaged it becomes clear that the two Tommies are supposed to be the patsies in a scheme to hijack the silver They escape the shipwreck by a miracle but wind up in Dartmoor after being tried for mutiny and when they escape all they want is to get even with the scoundrels who put them there The uest will lead them to an isolated rock in the Barents Sea where OK no spoilers Suffice it to say there is a lot of man on the run desperation bad weather sailing skulduggery contending with nature's awesome might and even a little romance Everything you want in a good old fashioned thriller

    Many of the elements that will appear later in The Wreck of the Mary Deare can be found in this Innes postwar novel some eight years earlier The urgency to chase through choppy cold seas laden with dangerous rocks the salvaging of a mystery ship and the lengthy proceedings of a maritime court case That and the tale of two captains taking very different pathsThere is another coincidence here I suppose it is a coincidence at least And that is the plot device that surrounds the loss of the Trikkala and its cargo of silver bullion The deception at work is very similar to that which appeared in The Wake of the Red Witch The latter appeared on movie screens the same year Innes published his novel 1948 Garland Roark's novel itself was published two years earlier And of course Roark's story about pirates volcanoes and the East Indies Fair Wind to Java came about also in 1948 before being made into a movie in 1953 Lots of inspiration for Innes in those two works I think Nonetheless the pacing and characteristic teases in which Innes gradually drops hints of impending trouble into his story are present in Maddon's Rock to make this work in both style and substance an identifiable creation of Hammond Innes'

    Always a good read from this old master I used to read these in my late teens and twenties and always enjoyed them Good clean old fashioned adventure Probably a little tame by today's standards but no reason not to like it His work is timeless

    Maddon's Rock is a very solid thriller in 3 acts Set towards the end of WW2 and just after like many of Innes' books it is mainly set at sea The main characters are nicely developed with a good supporting cast and the story is both exciting and to a certain extent unpredictable The finale is perhaps a little rushed and there could have been a few elements to it but all in this book has aged very well and even reading it today it has good pacing and a good sense of place I would recommend to anyone looking for some solid escapism and a nicely packaged yarn

    Another excellent story from Hammond Innes His ability to create suspense and paint an image is superb The range of characters gives the book a fascinating storyline that makes you want to keep reading His stories based on nautical themes are always very strong and this is no exception

    I'm pretty sure I'd read this one before years ago Bits of it seemed familiar but it obviously wasn't all that memorable It was an okay read
