(Title cover from the film of the same name, starring Humphrey Bogart)
My first book of the new year is a very readable and interesting fictional account of “mutinous” events on board a WW2 American minesweeper and the subsequent legal palaver.
It’s got something for everyone; romance, comedy, action, injustice and courtroom drama. This is proper middlebrow fiction, which no-one seems to publish these days.
The film is great as well.
