    1. Gregg Dunnett worked as Staff Writer and Photographer for the windsurfing magazine Boards for nearly ten years He was sent around the world testing equipment and reporting on competitions and locations Eventually Boards went bust, which wasn t entirely his fault, and he turned to writing novels instead His first to be released is The Wave at Hanging Rock.He lives on the UK s south coast with his Spanish partner Maria and their two young children.Gregg on why he writes I ve always wanted to do two things in life, to write, and to have adventures When I was a kid I imagined grand affairs Kayaking across Canada, cycling to Australia Whole summers in the Arctic Did it happen Well, partly I ve been lucky, I spent some years abroad teaching English I worked in sailing schools in Greece and Spain I really lucked out with a job testing windsurfing boards for the magazine I grew up reading I made a questionable decision ok, a bad decision to buy a windsurfing centre in Egypt I ve also done my fair share of less exciting jobs Packing and stacking potatoes on a farm, which got me fitter than I ve ever been in my life I did a few years in local government which taught me that people really do have meetings that result only in the need for meetings, and they really do take all afternoon I spent a pleasant few months in a giant book warehouse, where I would deliberately get lost could get lost among the miles of shelves unpacking travel guides and daydreaming I ve done a bit of writing too, at least I learned how to write Boards Magazine isn t well known it doesn t even exist today but it did have a reputation for being well written and I shoe horned articles in my own gonzo journalism style on some topics with the most tenuous of links to windsurfing But the real adventures never came Nor did the real writing Then last year, my brother announced he was going to become the first person to windsurf alone around Great Britain I don t know why Apparently it was something he d always wanted to do news to me It was a proper adventure It was dangerous, it was exciting Even just talking about it he got on TV, in the papers Some people thought he was reckless, some thought he was inspirational Lots of people thought he d fail.But he didn t He made it around He even sailed solo from Wales to Ireland, the first to make the crossing without the aid of a safety boat I was lucky enough to be involved in a superficial planning level, and take part in a few training sails, and the last leg of the trip But he did ninety nine percent of it on his own One step at a time, just getting on with it That was quite inspiring In a way it inspired me to pull my finger out I d been writing novels or trying to write novels then for a few years But it was touch and go as to whether I was going to be one of those writers with a half finished novel lost on a hard drive somewhere, rather than someone who might actually manage to finish the job I ve now got two lovely, highly demanding children, so real adventures are hard right now I still try to get away when I can for nights out in the wilds rough camping, surf trips sleeping in the van, windsurfing when the big storms come I love adventures with the kids too And I m still going to try and get around that damn Isle of Wight on a windsurfer one of these days I hope in time to get around to a few real adventures I want to sail across an ocean I want to bike across a continent I definitely want to spend time surfing empty waves.But for me, for now at least, the real adventures take place in my mind In my real life I m too chained down with the mortgage to travel the world at the drop of a hat But when I m writing I m totally free When I write, that s me having an adventure For on Gregg please visit his website at greggdunnett

    2. This is the best book so far. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books but I think Greg Dunnett has found his, nearly twelve year old, voice. The story keeps you enthralled throughout, in fact I didn’t put it down until I had finished it and now I am missing Billy already. The device of speaking to the reader is so well implemented that it made me feel like a trusted friend and the overall writing style is effortless and makes reading easy. I also found that the references to the sea and sea l [...]

    3. Exciting!Gregg Dennett is my favourite author of the moment. His books are well written (a few extra commas here and there, but who's counting). It's an exciting story set on an imaginary island with plenty of twists and turns and a really good finish. The main character is an eleven year old boy who is amazingly smart, and after a couple of false starts finally figures out the true story. The surfing scenes are amazingly realistic, I could actually feel Billy's fear when he is made to go in the [...]

    4. BrilliantThis is Greg's best work to date .I loved both his earlier books but the characters in this one were especially likeable. The main character Billy made me laugh and I felt invested in him and even thought about him when I wasn't able to read on , wondering what was going to happen next. Loved it nothing to fault hence five stars if you liked wave at hanging Rick and the desert run you will not be disappointed.

    5. Mr Dunnett has done it again, another cracking book. It takes a little while to warm up, but once Billy has solved the crime this goes at a really good pace.It's gripping, it has twists, it is terrific.Dear Mr Dunnett, write faster, write more :)

    6. For a thriller, this was a fun one. Easy to read, told through the eyes of an eleven year old boy. It has some twists, but I pretty much knew who the bad person was by the last few chapters. This would be a 3 1/2. I still think Gregg Dunnett's novel The Wave at Hanging Rock was his best so far. He is just an enjoyable, entertaining author, nothing too deep.

    7. This is the 2nd novel by this author I have read and both have been well written and suspenseful. Billy is an unusual 11 year old living on a small island with his surfer dad. they basically have nothing in common. Bad things happen that cause Billy to doubt his dad and things only get worse when the police get involved.

    8. Another great thriller!Interesting protagonist as young Billy - had a real feeling of his perspective in trying to prove his suspicions - probably one of very few books written from this angle that I've read. A real page turner and plenty of twists and turns. Thoroughly enjoyed it and I am a confirmed fan of Gregg Dunnett - read all 3 of his books!
