THE coast of Dorset has become the setting for a gripping spy thriller in a new novel by local author, Richard Trahair.

Sailor All At Sea follows the drama surrounding a retired Royal Navy officer and a murdered Ukrainian General, who are unknowingly connected by a beautiful young woman.

The action is spread across the shores of Dorset, a flat in Bermondsey and the docks of Liverpool, as the two main characters are united by an escalating crisis.

Devotion, love and loyalties become intertwined as the criminal plot quickly unfolds.

Richard Trahair was educated at Sherborne School and grew up on the borders of Devon and Cornwall, where he learnt to row a boat almost before he could walk. He now lives in a small Wiltshire village with his wife, Biddy.

Sailor All At Sea is his first novel and is available to purchase from Amazon and all major online bookselling sites.
