Acclaimed crime writer on diving Bermuda’s wrecks


One of the world’s best known crime writers, the US author and avid diver Patricia Cornwell, has extolled the Island’s water in today’s Telegraph.

“Bermuda is the most interesting place I’ve dived,” Ms Cornwell told the UK newspaper. “I started diving at shipwrecks off the coast of Bermuda — there are so many. Some of them are very old, dating back to the time of the American Civil War. My biggest frustration is that I can’t take notes under water.”

Probably best known for her “Scarpetta” crime novel series, Ms Cornwell said she’d gone “scuba diving in the Bermuda Triangle as part of research for my books”. Diving scenes are to feature in her upcoming work, she said.

The article, which includes a shot of local beaches, adds that the author believes the ocean makes for “the perfect holiday”.
