The Waiting-Pool

By Mike Rothery

Action & adventure, Thriller | Paperback, eBook


It is October 1982 and the Caribbean island of Grenada is under the control of the revolutionary government of Maurice Bishop, but the coup has failed to bring harmony to the island. Corruption at the very highest level allows criminals to operate virtually unhindered, attracting growing opposition from both sides of the political spectrum. The Reagan Administration in Washington increasingly suspect Cuban involvement, and with the President particularly focussed on his war on the pernicious cocaine trade, it is vital to restore stability and disrupt the trafficking routes to the US territories in the north. Into this political maelstrom sail Stella and Patrick, to drop anchor at one of the country’s lesser islands and enjoy a ‘chill-out’ after an arduous Atlantic crossing. Their bright idyll is soon shattered, however, when they discover two murdered Americans and the pair are suddenly and violently enmeshed in the darker side of island life.

Inspired by the sea and travel, Rothery enjoys sail cruising and exploring exotic locations. Between books there’s nothing he likes better than to crew up with a stranger on a yacht and sail across some ocean or other. He lives in Weymouth, Dorset, UK, but in winter his favourite place of work is a balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea. In his past he served twenty five years in the Royal Navy and then another twenty years as Director of a software company. He started writing novels in 2013.
