[QUOTE=farmerfalconer;194122]Staying in a hostal in Galway Ireland and found an old dusty dime-paperback tucked amongst the many romance novels.
“A Web of Salvage” by Brian Callison.
Good read, if quick. Follows two old friends running a salvage tug off Algeria geting into some trouble while attempting to salvage a Turkish freighter. Rather exciting plot and I would recommend it. Seems he (Callison) went to sea at 16 and sailed quite some time before starting his writing career so his book seemed fittingly accurate which I enjoyed. He wrote quite a few others apparently, all set at sea with merchant seaman as the main protagonists. I may need to pick a few up before my next hitch.[/QUOTE]
Callison has written some very good books. I can’t recall if I have read “A Web of Salvage”, however. Check out his “A Ship is Dying”. Great read.
