During the war, Iain Ross had been disgraced, and then drowned at sea -- or so his family believed. But a curious mission takes his brother Donald to the Hebrides to meet a Major Braddock, and he finds the man who was once his brother living a new life in a dead man's name. Braddock is running the evacuation of the army base on the remote, gale-swept island of Laerg. Winter is closing in, and he has his own reasons for wanting the army -- and Donald Ross -- off Laerg as quickly as possible, even in the face of a furious storm building out in the Atlantic.

Mr. Innes describes the sea better than anyone I know of. Whether it is a calm at terrific storm or a beautiful calm at sunset, he makes one feel both the frightening and the beautiful. His description of fog is unusual. This is an engaging story with lots of action. It's easy for the reader to identify with the characters and even to like the meanest of them. I enjoyed the book. It is well-narrated. I recommend it.
