    READ & DOWNLOAD ½ Dead and Alive Dead and AliveWith a title doubtless designed to recall those wanted posters from the wild west of America Innes' novel is about an eually lawless region Italy in the immediate aftermath of the second world war And yet it opens not in the dry fly ridden south of the peninsula but on the cold wet North Cornish coastIntriguingly the star opening the show is a wreck Specifically a landing craft an LCT Mark 4 stranded on Boscastle beach not far from King Arthur's Castle at Tintagel And it will lead to a uest in which narrator David Cunningham will play the chivalrous knight seeking a damsel in distressBut not before he his business partner and his crew of two have black marketeers gun runners resurgent fascists gangsters a forger and a rapist to cope with and a ruined infrastructure to negotiate Dead and Alive is an old fashioned adventure novel a mix of traditional virtues and of stark realism that typified stiff upper lip thrillers of a certain period the hero would like to be morally unambiguous

    READ & DOWNLOAD ½ Dead and Alive Dead and AliveI read this in the interests of research needing some background information about skullduggery at sea Not entirely fulfilled by this since it was written in 1946 when conversations were evidently longer winded and better spoken and the gap between men and of
