In life nothing ever goes according to plan and Crete is a place where even the best-laid plans can be guaranteed to go awry. When Frank O'Connell decides to revisit the island of dreams with a young, new wife in tow and a climbing map in his expensive suitcase he is totally unprepared for what is to follow. Once again Crete works its spell, seducing Frank's wife, Annabel, who finding herself at a loose end for a few days in the sun and with the sea a stone's throw away, becomes involved in a passionate affair with her husband's bank manager. Annabel's actions however, are not without their consequences and once more the O'Connell name in Crete is linked to adventures its owners would rather forget. Bittersweet, at times poignant and always entertaining, Victor Hardbattle's tale of love, sex and desire painstakingly builds a world that in the sequel to his high-octane Hidden Shores takes us through the intricacies of life, the complexities of being human and the consequences of actions powered by the heart. Enhanced with a multi-media CoolZone that also contains sound files helping with the Greek pronunciation of basic greetings Victor Hardbattle's love and knowledge of the island of Crete shines through every page re-creating for the reader the hot Cretan sun and the cool blue sea.
