The Boat Synopsis

It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime...Johnny and his new bride Clem have arrived in Turkey for a year's honeymoon. Young, blissfully happy but poor, they are surviving on love, luck and a spirit of adventure. So when a boat appears out of a raging storm, crewed by a bohemian couple who represent everything Johnny and Clem want to be, they do not think twice about stepping on board. But all is not as it seems. And when they finally open their eyes to the truth, the boat is in the middle of the vast open sea...With echoes of The Beach, this is a hypnotic, emotionally charged novel about two sweet young lovers who lose their innocence in paradise.

The Good Book Guide Review

Do readers pay attention to the imprints of publishers? If they don’t, they should – for the publisher Head of Zeus has quickly established itself with one of the strongest crime lists, with virtually every entry proving to be something special. That is very much the case with Clara Salaman’s The Boat. Johnny and his new bride Clem arrive in Turkey for a year’s honeymoon. They are young, happy, but poor. A boat appears out of a storm, crewed by a bohemian couple who represent everything Johnny and Clem want to be, and they ask the couple to join them. But all is not as it seems.
