    One thought on “island where time stands still.”

    1. Very well written and beautifully descriptive. I've already put my library on alert that I intend to work my way through the Gregory Sallust novels.They've sent a man into the basement to see what he can find.Oh, and the dust cover on my copy is a work of art, it's a shame to hide it on a shelf

    2. A thrilling adventure story with one of those old-time heroes who can rise from any adversity to win the situation has a very plausible plot and despite Mr Wheatley's propensity to tie up loose ends pretty hard, an absorbing read
