The Riddle of the Sands
Carruthers is persuaded to take his holidays with Davies, and joins him on his small yacht in the Baltic and the North Sea, where they sail around trying to work out if the bloke that tried to kill Davies last week by deliberately running him aground is a spy or not, and if so what is the evil German plot?
Jolly good story, although keeping up with exactly who suspects who of what at any one time is a bit tricky. Some very good sailing bits though.
