On the 12th of April, 1955 Raymond Chandler
boarded the Mauritania in New York setting sail
for the England of his youth. A Knight at Sea is
a fictional account of that voyage. Woven like a
film noir, this is a Chandleresque tale of bizarre
friendship coupled with intrigue and murder.
R J Raskin is one of the pen names used by

whose previous books have been widely reviewed
both in Britain and the United States.

resist ... funny as well." The Guardian
