An exciting murder mystery set evocatively in the international live-aboard yachting community in Turkey. We follow Hasan, the playboy policeman, in his search for the identity of a woman thrown overboard tied to an anchor and his hunt for her killer. Abby, new to sailing and enchanted by the lives of these free spirits of the seas, begins to fear that the killer may be one of her friends.
A woman is pushed overboard from a sailing yacht out at sea, her feet tied to an anchor...
In the south eastern Mediterranean, a Turkish fishing boat picks up the body of a woman, with a rope, chain and anchor still attached to her feet.
Abby, with a slowly mending broken heart, has moved from London to a small seaside town in southern Turkey where she has found an interesting and eclectic circle of cruising, ex-pat and Turkish friends, one of whom is the local policeman, Hasan. Very attractive, with good language skills and something of a playboy, he has been given the task of trying to find out who the dead woman is and who could have killed her. Among others, he is investigating the single handed sailors in the area, most of them Abby’s friends.
Abby has just taken an interest in sailing, has overcome her fear of the sea, and even begins to fall in love. As Hasan keeps digging deeper it becomes obvious that one of these sailors may be the killer. But which one....

A delightful murder mystery romance: beautiful woman with three dishy men after her, one of whom's a killer - which will she choose? Add to this an enjoyable insight into expat life on the Azure coast in southern Turkey and you have a great read AND COME ON HOLLYWOOD, a great film waiting to be made.
