"There can be no better writer of modern sea adventure around today." – Clive Cussler
USA Today-bestselling author David Poyer writes gripping undersea thrillers in the tradition of Clive Cussler and John D. MacDonald. On a moonless night in March, 1945, a Coast Guard destroyer sank a German U-Boat fifty miles off Hatteras Island, the Graveyard of the Atlantic. Now, a half-century later, the mummified corpses of three of its crewmen, wrapped in a decaying rubber raft, come to light during the excavation for a new shopping development. Their reappearance unleashes a tide of powerful forces . . . neo-Nazis with a ruthless plan to corner the South American drug market, an Isreali intelligence operative, and a shadowy, wealthy "historian" with his own, even more dangerous plan.
When Hatteras native, salvage diver, and ex-con Lyle "Tiller" Galloway III starts digging into the discovery, he's forced by a black island family cheated of their beachfront land to take on a dangerous silent partner. Together, he and Shadrach Aydlett will track down what actually happened in the Carolina sand hills so long before, and what everyone's really after . . . tons of long-lost Nazi gold. And finally, face down a ruthless killer in a gut-wrenching battle that climaxes hundreds of feet beneath the surface.
Taut with vividly-told diving scenes, and delving deep into the rich lore and oral traditions of the Outer Banks, HATTERAS BLUE's rare original hardcover edition sells for over a hundred dollars. This new ebook edition has been revised and updated by the author to make it even more fast-paced, exciting, and authentic.

Testosterone and sea water. This is fast, formulaic men's adventure fiction with no literary pretentions of any kind. What's the sunken German sub's cargo? Why did three men come ashore on the Outer Banks from the doomed u-boat? Haven't we seen these plot elements in other books? An okay way to kill time in an airport or in a crowded subway car where concentration is impossible. Heaven help us if Clive Cussler's book cover blurb is true and 'There can be no better writer of modern sea adventure around today.'
