Overview

In celebration of the thirty-fifth anniversary of this renowned maritime thriller, a new edition for the next generation of readers.
It was the largest moving object on the face of the earth,but for Carolyn and Peter Hardin it was a towering wall of steel bursting out of a squall at full speed, bearing down on their ketch Siren. In a few dramatic moments, Siren was shattered by the indifferent juggernaut. Struggling for his life, Peter Hardin felt the hand of his wife being torn from his grip as the huge white letters on the supertanker’s stern–Leviathan—steamed away. Thus begins an odyssey of revenge that embraces the distant waters of the world, from the titanic storms of the South Atlantic to the oil-slicked reaches of the Persian Gulf. Now back in print for the first time in twenty-five years, The Shipkiler is the story of one man determined to win at sea the justice he has been denied on land.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Clive Cussler, Scott’s collaborator on the bestselling The Thief, provides a new preface to this 1978 Scott novel, which PW reviewed that year: “When the world’s largest supertanker collides with Peter Hardin’s small yacht and kills his wife, he vows to avenge her death by destroying the colossal Leviathan. In the biggest sea hunt since Ahab sailed out of New Bedford, Hardin sets out with a stolen missile launcher and Ajaratu, a beautiful black doctor who treats his wounds and falls in love with him. As a fast-paced and thoroughly exciting chase ensues across the oceans of the world, Hardin and Ajaratu face a variety of dangers, not the least of which is the cunning captain of the tanker. The Israeli secret service comes into the picture when they guess Hardin’s plan, and they help him in the hopes of developing a counter-threat to Arab terrorism. Scott, author of The Turning, spent time on a freighter researching the book, and his efforts pay off in a first-rate tale of suspense.” Agent: Henry Morrison, Henry Morrison Literary Agency. (June)
Yachting Magazine
“One of the best fiction sailing adventures.”
San Francisco Chronicle
“There is a hint of Moby Dick in the theme of this excellent thriller.”
Time Magazine
“The Shipkiller is a superbly written thriller in which Scott limns his driven people as stylishly as his boats.”
Robert Ludlum
“A stunner. Absolutely riveting. A marvelously taut, brilliantly told story of revenge, and the sea, and the dark forces that can shape the human condition.”
Christopher Buckley
“Moby-Dick meets Tom Clancy, and what a splash it makes. The Shipkiller kept me up all night. One hell of a sea story.”

    I read this book when it first came out in 78 and loved it. I am so glad
    it is being republished as it is one of the best sea tales, right up
    there with Master and Commander in my estimation. Enjoy!

    Sailors will love this book

    Good story - Excellant detail - If you know sailing you will not be able to put it down. I read it cover to cover in one sitting back in 1979. This time (2011) it took two days (old age takes its toll).
