"An intriguing thriller for those who enjoy sea adventures." ― Booklist
In the Bering Sea, Bennkah , the largest oil tanker ever built, newly commissioned in Vladivostok, Russia, is on a secret mission. On this maiden voyage, Captain Borodin is at the helm. He is the only one aboard aware of the mission.
Soon an engineer discovers a defect seemingly minor, but one with disastrous potential. Despite his attempts to correct the problem, a fire erupts, contained at first, then rapidly spreads out of control, consuming the behemoth ship.
A Mayday call alerts Sonny Wade some two hundred miles from the burning ship. This could be the lifeline that Sonny and his ragtag crew need to save their failing salvage business. But Dan Sharp, Sonny's nemesis and former employer, the owner of the largest salvage business in northern Alaska, also hears the call. A brutal race is on to claim the burning ship before it sinks or runs aground, contaminating the entire north Pacific Rim and not only with oil.

Well written and suspenseful. Good ending with possibility of further exploration of Captain and crew
This pair of authors have crafted a story and characters that will become much better known. The storyline was original and believable. That can not always be said for this genre. I expect to see more of "Sonny" and the crew as they become read by an increasing fan base. It will be well deserved. The setting in the Bering Sea was one of their better hooks. - R Frost
Loved it...if you liked Clive Cusslers "Sahara" or Andy McDermotts "Nina and Eddie" series, this one is for you! I hope theres more to come!!
This is an outstanding action story, with many subplots to tantalize the reader and keep the interest level high. The descriptions are so vivid that the story shows like a movie in your head. The ragtag crew of Skeleton and Bones are deep, damaged and interesting. The story is heart-pounding, the writing is fabulous, and the characters are unique. This is definitely a keeper for rereading.
