Magical Whitby is celebrated in the title piece. Two gale-wrecked Victorian seafront shelters are recorded in verse, plus murder in antiquity at the Roman Signal Station. Harrassed granny quizzed for a terrorist. A Polish chef lifts corner on Britain’s secret war. Whitby Gazette correspondent admits overambitious investment in new swimwear. Jilted boyfriend enlists Chinese hackers to rain death from the sky. Innocent Bahamas teenager “kidnapped” by the Royal Navy. A mere deck boy gets to steer his ship through the Panama Canal. Nervy cat shields evil twin. Scandalous lives in a moorland village. “Dryad” rescues boy caravanner from death or worse.

An anthology to delight all who enjoy good reading or yearn for creative writing.
