CORNWELL, Bernard. Wildtrack. New York : G.P. Putnam's Sons, (1988). First American Printing. Pp. [1]-320. 8vo, black cloth spine with blue paper-covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. Bernard Cornwell, OBE (b. February 23,1944, London). "Month by grueling month, [the protagonist, Nicholas] Sandm an, wounded in the Falklands War, teaches himself to walk again, and heads home. Everything he has is gone -- his money, his wife, his children -- allbut his one great love: a 38-foot ketch called Sycorax. But to his horror the looted, vandalized shell of Sycorax lies rotting near Nick's former home, now owned by television star Tony Bannister. Bannister is shocked -- he had no idea! -- and immediately offers to help Nick retore the boat in exchange for a favour. Will Nick navigate Bannister's own yacht, Wildtrack, in a critical race? With trepidation, Nick accepts -- and is plunged into a maelstrom of deceit, corruption, and danger. For beneath Bannister's smooth words lies a web of disturbing questions. [...] As he desperately tries to unravel the tangled secrets that surround Wildtrack and its owner, Nick finds his own life on the line, human treachery battling the raging elements, as high winds sweep him toward a stormy mid-Atlantic 'killing ground' where it will take more than a sailor's skill to survive." - from the dj.
