Synopsis

Something in the Sea by Yves Bonavero

Itâs a steamy, sultry day during a hot Mediterranean summer and Terence, a rich London lawyer, is relaxing on his yacht with his beautiful wife Cathy and their young daughter Lucy. But the idyllic holiday is shattered when a sudden storm whips up from nowhere. Terence battles into the night to save the lives of his family and guide the boat into Dubrovnik harbour. Unable to go ashore until daybreak, Cathy is tending to her daughterâs injuries when a large motor-cruiser pulls up alongside them. Its wounded skipper, Kurt, comes aboard their yacht seeking medical help, and there, in the darkest hours of the night, Terence and Cathy are forced to listen to Kurtâs disturbing story…

Yves Bonavero was born and educated in Paris. In his early twenties, Yves moved to London where he spent fourteen years in the City, rising to lead a major financial conglomerate. He left the City at the age of thirty-seven to pursue his interest in languages, literature, philosophy and cinema, going on to found Bonaparte Films. In 1996 Yves went to Oxford to read Philosophy and German as a mature student; he graduated with a First Class degree in 1999. Encouraged by his Oxford literature tutors, he began to write psychological thrillers.
