What would you do if you found a shark in a hotel bath? The hotel manager was horrified. Well, he would be, wouldn’t he? There’s a shark in a guest’s bath. How did it get there? Only author John Reid Young knows. He also knows he’s in deep trouble. Hotel sharks aren’t the only surprise in this charming collection of short stories set in Spain’s Canary Islands… • There’s a desperate race against time to arrest one of the Great Train Robbers when he flees to Tenerife. • A British revolutionary gets caught up in the illegal transport of human cargo during the dark days of General Franco. • A young American is shocked when he finds out why island villagers are convinced he’s a ghost. • When a pirate’s chest was discovered in a cave near a waterfall, nobody could have expected what lay within. In these, and other fascinating stories, you’ll encounter a host of captivating characters, some of whom have left their mark in the history of these beautiful Atlantic islands, and you’ll discover that this unique archipelago off the African coast is so much more than just a modern-day tourist destination. Sit back and let the delightful travel writing of John Reid Young transport you to bygone days of love, war, intrigue, and adventure in the sub-tropical sunshine of Tenerife.
