Bibliosaurus | 1 comments I read this many years ago , paperback, library fiction. The plot uses a stranger taking over a group of friends going on a boating holiday ,inland either the broads or a river trip - they all think each other invited him, of course no one did, and he controls them all - I forget with what aim -possibly to dash or destroy the status of the others with their "friends". Any one read it?

Genre fiction or literary fiction?
Author's gender?
Around what year did you read it?
Or when was it published?
What country/region is the setting?
Any other plot details you remember?
How big is the boat?

Sue Elleker | 767 comments I remember a BBC television play with a similar plot. Was it called something to do with "waters" or "river"?
