The book starts with a graphic and atmospheric description of a young man, Johnny, committing suicide by drowning. We then meet him and his new bride on an extended honeymoon in Turkey. They are befriended by a family who live on a boat and quickly become accepted into their life. Johnny, an experienced sailor, is now in his element. Then the relationships get complicated. This is a dark, psychological thriller despite its wonderful sunny setting. It is disturbing stuff.

Synopsis

The Boat by Clara Salaman

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.

Reviews

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
