le tueur des mersThe Shipkiller was my first real sea romance, read straight through onboard a friend's boat in 1981, sailing in a weekend between Lorient and Ile de Groix. This handbook, I still held, I was so struck that I, repeatedly, tried to find it in the original edition, I just do not. I come finally to acquire a re Grasset, now available again. That's why I wanted to share.

What is extraordinary, in this book, Not only is the suspense of the first light to last page, but also the incredible technical knowledge of the sea and boats that demonstrates the author throughout the story, so he never had any other marine activity in his youth a short flight experience on the Hudson. Both maneuvers and descriptions of life aboard the supertanker, that the different boats armed by the central character in the story, demonstrate a meticulous research work. This brings such credibility to the story, especially for a browser confirmed, it becomes almost as real as if we actually read a variety of news magazine.

I shall say no more, run the search. If I had to classify a note 1 to 10 Marine in my library, is the maximum score achieved if.
