Publisher's Summary

The Mediterranean, 1943... The HMS Rob Roy. A tiny machine, just 230 feet from stem to stern. In peacetime she would have trawled for cod. Now her catch is deadlier by far. Lieutenant-Commander Ian Ransome is a veteran of the treacherous front line of naval combat. For three years, he’s swept the explosive curtain of Nazi mines that shrouds the British Isles. Now, under sealed orders in the battle-tossed waters of the Mediterranean, he and his jack-tired crew face one final test of their courage and seamanship under fire. Their secret mission: to spearhead the Allies’ desperate invasion of Italy.

Not as exciting as many of the novels by the author. Minor romances slow the story down. The author emphasises the role of the lowly Minesweepers. As usual the performance by David Rintoul is superb.

Not a modern book but it was a fast read when it first came out and I for one loved it. Alas time has moved on and writing with it. Today's writers are more able to describe the scenario with more emphasis.

This should not detract from Reemans evident talent. If you are into naval stories from the world wars this is worth a listen.
