A Fine Night For Dying by Jack Higgins

Harvey Preston is drug to the bottom of the English Channel wrapped in chains. His death brings up suspicion, and becomes linked to a cross channel smuggling ring. Undercover, Paul Chavasse is sent to investigate this matter. He soon learns the real truth, but before it can be revealed he is caught. It is a constant fight for Paul's life, while he attempts to conceal his secrets.

This book is a fast-paced action thriller. It is a tale of suspicion and murder from beginning to end. It follows a smuggling ship's voyage through Europe in 1969.

I believe this book should be for mature readers only, for two reasons. First, this book contained many murders and was gorey. Also, towards the beginning of the book a man named, Jacaud, attempts to rape a young girl.
