From Textbooks to Novel
It’s not often that a university professor abandons academia in favour of writing a novel. However, this is precisely what Emeritus Professor Fred Lockwood has done.
Total Loss traces the lives of three groups of people before they intersect dramatically when an ageing freighter sinks off the coast of Kenya. A routine marine inspection of the wreck by the fledgling Marine Salvage & Investigation Company, established by Jack Collier and Sandro Calovarlo, brings them together. The Sacranie brothers and sister, who own the vessel and have cargo on board, risk their secret being uncovered. Soloman Mbano, a powerful underworld figure in East Africa, is desperate to salvage valuable merchandise he is transporting and to do so at any cost.
The action above and below water is relentless. Total Loss takes you from Liverpool to Dar es Saalam, from Dubai to Delhi, from the depths of the Atlantic to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
