I remember a book being besides my Mum's bed when i was a young teen. She would never let me read it because it was too grown up. Thing is, she has been gone a while, and I would really like to read it as it was one of her favorites. Ok, see if this rings any bells.
A woman is standing naked in the sea with her back to the camera. She is holding a machine gun over her head. I think she is looking at a desert island.
It was the late 1980's.
Anyone???

You are too modest, kathy (you obv have total recall of all 1980s potboilers wink)
