Description: "Trevor feels that this is going to be the most exciting holiday he has ever had. He and his father will be joining three other men on the Greek island of Matmos where they are renting a villa. They will also a hire a boat from which to skin-dive. On the mainland, Trevor and his father fall in with a young Italian, Carlos Mancini. Carlos speaks Greek and is knowledgeable about boats and skin-diving, so it seems he will be a useful member of the party. [But] is Carlos a different person from the one he makes out to be? And why does Nikki, the Greek donkey-boy, dislike him? Finding the answers to these questions makes it[…]the holiday of a lifetime, after all."
