The Riddle of the Sands

Written by Erskine Childers

Carruthers recounts to a friend the harrowing journey he took on the spur of the moment with an acquaintance named Davies. Davies needed help in his small sailing vessel but what he did not tell Carruthers was that it was to study German activities on a series of small islands off their coast, actions that Davies is convinced is in preparation for war.
