About This Item

(London: Collins, 1960, 1st edition). 8vo; original red boards; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 318. Dustwrapper a little damp-stained, edgeworn, and sunned on spine; spine slightly cocked; sporadic light foxing. Good condition. "It was John Barrow who persuaded Ogilvie to leave the research unit at Pretoria and to work day and night to evolve and build an electric shark barrier at Aguada da Boa Paz. It is only when Ogilvie arrives at the lonely and haunted place that he realises that his presence echoes events of a hundred years before, when another John Ogilvie and another John Barrow had come there on a sinister enterprise which had ended in bitterness and disaster." .
