Goliath by Shawn Corridan, Gary Waid is a suspense-filled book about a giant Russian oil tanker. It was on a secret mission when a fire occurred and consumed the massive ship. Bennkah, Bravo-Echo-November-November-Kilo-Alpha-Hotel sent a Mayday call, when it ran aground on its maiden voyage. There were no survivors. Because it kept my attention, I gave it four stars. Sonny Wade, a salvager hanging on by the skin of his teeth and his motley crew heard the call and head for the Bennkah. Dan Sharp, Sonny's former employer and now perpetual enemy also heard the call and the race is on. Bennkah means Goliath. There's also a 'Goliath-like' battle between Sonny and Dan. Sharpe-Shooters have the monetary and equipment advantage. Sonny with his Skeleton and Bones boats have the heart. Who will be able to salvage this massive ship? I received a complimentary copy from Oceanview Publishing and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.
