Synopsis

Something in the Sea by Yves Bonavero

Itâs a steamy, sultry day of a hot Mediterranean summer. Terence, a rich London lawyer, his beautiful wife Cathy, a doctor, and their young daughter Lucy are relaxing on the yacht that is Terenceâs pride and joy.

Suddenly, a storm whips up from nowhere and Terence battles into the night to save the lives of his family. Battered and bruised, they limp into Dubrovnik harbour. Unable to go ashore until daybreak, Cathy tends to her daughterâs injuries when a large motor-cruiser pulls up alongside the yacht. Its wounded skipper, the enigmatic Kurt, comes aboard the familyâs yacht also seeking medical help. As the darkest hours slowly tick by, Terence and Cathy have to listen to Kurtâs disturbing story …

At sunrise, Terence is a changed man, desperate to cling to his wife and daughter, and accordingly willing to change his life — a life about which, it transpires, he has been somewhat less than candid.
