In 1972, Desmond Bagley sent a typed first draft of a new novel to his publishers, with the working title 'Because Salton Died'. Publication was delayed and the typescript, having been returned to Bagley, was subsequently presumed lost. In 2017 Philip Eastwood rediscovered the draft novel within the Desmond Bagley archive held at the Howard Gotlieb Archive Research Center in Boston, USA. Drawing on correspondence and annotations by Desmond Bagley and his editor, author and Bagley enthusiast Michael Davies has developed the draft into the thriller Domino Island.
an excellent and enjoyable read. A blast from the past!
