'Drug On The Market is a story of the sea, and of a coast either ironbound, savage and rockstrewn, or of empty wideflung saltmarsh where the wildfowl flight at dusk and dawn. It is a stoy, mainly taking place between dusks and dawns, of great ships and small ships, of men struggling against sea and coast, for decency, for life, or only for money, big money, caring not who is hurt or corrupted in the process; and of a very feminine woman who chooses to play a man's part, nevertheless. Philip Hepburn, Lieutenant-Commander R.N., home in East Lothian on leave from Far Eastern service, stumbles on strange events in the benighted seas of the great Firth of Forth estuary, and stumbles again, this time to his own hurt, on the equally benighted tidelands of Aberlady Bay. An inquisitive and obstinate man, Trisha Denholm saves him once - but cannot save him a second time. From pilot-cutter to ocean-going tanker, from tiny launch to 40-knot motor torpedo boat, the action moves, and moves fast. Yet nothing moves so surely, so dramatically and wickedly, even the evil passions of ruthless men, as the secret inexorable seeping tides of the spreading saltmarsh. Time and tide, they say, wait for no man - yet these tides lie in wait indeed.' 8vo - over 7Â¾" - 9Â¾" tall. Quantity Available: 1.
