Blue sea, brown rivers, red blood

Two Wars - Three Women...

Helena fell in love with Bill after only ten minutes, but her father, a hard-bitten ship owner, wouldn't think twice about fitting concrete boots to any man talking advantage of his daughter and dropping him in the Hudson River. In December Billy Bindle is an unemployed seaman whose main aim in life is to have a beer in the pub with his mates and chat up the local barmaids. By April the following year Bill is a ship-owning gunrunner breaking the Nigerian blockage of Biafra. He is also on the radar of the British MI6 and is accused by Prime Minister Harold Wilson of being a mercenary profiteering from war.
