Publisher's Summary

After Philip Stenning is involved in a near-fatal plane crash, he feels he owes a debt of gratitude to the man who rescued him. However, his mysterious saviour is an escaped convict, and Stenning’s determination to help leads him into a tense and dramatic adventure of intrigue, drug-running and murder.

Marazan was Nevil Shute’s first published novel, and in his autobiography, Slide Rule, he recalls writing the book twice over before rewriting large portions a third time.

Of its time

A real adventure story, very much of its time. The thirties seep from every phrase and some views are decidedly old fashioned. The story is innovative and exciting, if simple!
