In Pilotage, Stephen's navigator Peter Dennison is struggling with the same problem. These two early novels draw on Nevil Shute's own experiences as a young engineer.

Stephen Morris Reviews

An example of trim, professional storytelling with technical know-how (splendid accounts of flying, driving by night, and sailing) giving extra thrust to the narrative * Observer *
The English novel's only down-to-earth romantic... there is a quality of golden light that hangs over his books. That comes, I think, from his sense of order and from his own vast, undemonstrative solicitude -- John Ezard * Guardian *
