Overview


As daring and defiant as Kirk Douglas journeying 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, there’s no stopping diver Hawk Ridley as he takes the plunge into an ocean of untold riches and danger.  Fighting off ruthless rivals in search of gold is nothing new to Hawk…but fighting off a beautiful woman is a different story.  Is she an innocent stowaway or a seductive saboteur?  The answer comes Twenty Fathoms Down—as Hawk makes a discovery that will blow you out of the water.

When it came to research, Hubbard was not one to head for the library.  He always went to the source—in this case a U.S. navy deep-sea diver who agreed to show him the ropes and the danger.  Hubbard admits it was daunting—even frightening—but he returned from the experience with all the first-hand knowledge he needed to fathom the true nature of life and death underwater.

“Thrilling Adventure From The Master Story Teller.” Hawk Ridley is after sunken treasure, and he has the coordinates to the ship lying on the ocean floor near Haiti. But the Mercer brothers are also after the gold bullion, and a chest of jewels, and will not stop at murder to obtain them. They work Ocean Salvage, owned by Charles Stanton, and Hawk must not let them near enough to upset his own dreams. But then everything changes when Stanton’s beautiful daughter, Frederick “Vick” Stanton is found on his boat, wearing a wedding dress. What could possibly be going on? There is murder at twenty fathoms, and Hawk’s ship, the Stingaree is sunk while he is below recovering the treasure. Watching in awe as his ship goes down, taking with it the last of his air supply, Hawk knows he may never live to enjoy the treasure. This was another fascinating sea adventure by a master story teller, filled with plenty of action and suspense, and great characters. Highly recommended for adventure lovers, and readers that love a well-crafted yarn.
