The Sigli was just an old passenger launch. But with the Japenese invasion of Singapore, everything that could float was pressed into service. Crammed with refugees, harried and bombed by the enemy planes, she struggled south in a desperate bid to escape - and disappeared. Rupert Blair's family were among the passengers. Twenty years later, Blair, although rich and successful had never forgotted, never abandoned his obsessive need to find out exactly what had happened. Now he had found an eye witness and islands that were still primitive, even savage. Visitors were not welcome but Blair knew he had to discover the truth.
