The four Walker children never meant to go to sea. They had promised their mother to stay safely in the harbour, and to be home on Friday in time for tea. But there they are in someone else's boat, drifting out to sea in a thick fog. And, then comes the wind and the storm, driving them out even further across the cold North Sea.

To her parents' relief, Niamh is nothing if not respectable; Even though she works behind the bar at Tully McDiarmits' saloon, sober, high-necked gowns and her engagement to wealthy Hollis Maitland are quite enough to keep unruly customers at bay. Until the day she meets Judd Burden. Tall, broad-shouldered and with bold dark eyes that seem to see right through her prim facade, Niamh is both disturbed and fascinated by Judd -and she begins to stir again after long suppression in the name of duty. In their mutual fascination, neither Niamh nor Judd notice the powerful effect the name Burden has on Tully. And when Judd declares he intends to seek the uncle who disappeared with a mysterious inheritance, Tully must face losing the two things he holds most dear: his daughter and his business, founded on a secret which he fears must face the daylight once more . . .

On the 12th of April, 1955 Raymond Chandler boarded the Mauritania in New York setting sail for the England of his youth. A Knight at Sea is a fictional account of that voyage. Woven like a film noir, this is a Chandleresque tale of bizarre friendship coupled with intrigue and murder. R J Raskin is one of the pen names used by novelist and mystery writer, Bob Biderman, whose previous books have been widely reviewed both in Britain and the United States. Selected Reviews PAPER CUTS "This is nothing is what it seems territory with a few extra twists, mayhem and a cruel message. Formidable " The Sunday Times GENESIS FILES "Has a zip and freshness of narration hard to resist ... funny as well." The Guardian KOBA "A sharply compulsive narrative ..." Oxford Times

Things get personal when an American soldier steals his brother Spencer's cell phone. Bunny decides to track down the phone himself. Maybe they can get out of there before the war starts.
