A war-damaged veteran on a mission to self-destruct…
… a controlling father pushing him ever
closer to the edge…
… and a yachtswoman who gives all she has
to hold him back.
And between them all, there’s an old boat with
dark secrets, and perhaps a mind of its own.
‘A terrific and compelling story which highlights mental and physical challenges that many
who have served will recognise.’
General Sir Nick Parker Commander British Forces Afghanistan 2010
‘A cracking, believable yarn made even more authentic by the wonderfully descriptive
sailing scenes – and by falling in love with the true heroine, the Bristol Channel pilot cutter
Ewen Southby-Tailyour OBE, former Yachtsman of the Year
‘Tension release, tension release, fear, laughter, fear, lust, so you don’t notice the tightening
of the noose … the story sucks you in and won’t let go.‘
Suzie Wilde, Author of Sea Paths and Obsidian
‘A really cracking read about a soldier who attacks his battlefield demons through his
passion for sailing – and sadly still needs help’
Sir Peter Wall, President of Combat Stress

Draca blew my mind. Not typically a read I would grab for which is why I did. I think we miss out when we don’t try to read outside of our comfort zone and that is exactly what would have happened. This story blew me away.
The story sucked me in so quickly, I could barely catch my breath. This author knows how to use tension to his advantage. Giving the reader just a bit of a break before sucking them back in. Amazing.
I could go on and on but you need to pick this one up. Draca will blow your mind. Highly recommended.

GEOFFREY GUDGION served for over 10 years in the armed forces, and made his first attempts
at writing fiction during quiet moments on deployment. He later stepped off the corporate ladder, in the midst of a career in marketing and general management, specifically to release time to write. His first novel, Saxon’s Bane, reached #1 in Amazon Kindle’s ‘Ghost’ category, and he now writes full time. When not crafting words he is an enthusiastic amateur equestrian and a very bad pianist.
