Overview

The novel is written in the first person, fiction based on the author's experience as a shipping fraud and casualty investigator for the insurance world.
It takes the reader behind the scenes to tell the real story.
You enter a world of natural and man-made catastrophes. Experience what it's like to be trapped on a burning tanker loaded with 400,000 tons of highly inflammable crude oil.
What happens when a ship runs aground in thick fog. Imagine when lights failed, the ship in danger of breaking up.
Experience being aboard a ferry carrying sheep across the Bass Straits when it capsizes. Swept up into the bows by an avalanche of water flooding in through the stern door with the ship going full astern. Trapped in a steel coffin in darkness surrounded by dying sheep. In danger of suffocating as the bubble of air is slowly depleted of oxygen as the sheep gasp for breath. Abandoning hope of survival, then elated as divers appear to your rescue.
Then there's maritime crime. All that's needed is a rusty-hull destined for the breaker's yard. Insure a non existent cargo for an outrageous sum, and then scuttle it at sea. The claim for millions of dollars for the loss of the cargo will be viewed with suspicion by insurers.
Jim Stewart, the character in the book, meets many unique characters, in often tragi-comic situations. This is the first of three novels by J.R.Euen..
