Publisher's Summary

In the wake of his best-selling thriller Deadly Straits, which drew comparisons to Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler, and W.E.B. Griffin, newcomer R.E. McDermott is back with an action-packed sequel.
Dugan thought Somali pirates were bad news. Then it got worse.
As Tom Dugan and Alex Kairouz, his partner and best friend, struggle to ransom their ship and crew from murderous Somali pirates, things take a turn for the worse. A US Navy contracted tanker with a full load of jet fuel is also hijacked, not by garden variety pirates, but by terrorists with links to Al Qaeda, changing the playing field completely.
With a possible link between piracy and terrorism now in play, the US and British governments order the halt of all negotiations for captive ships, and enraged pirates ratchet up the mistreatment of the captive crews. When one of his crewmen is murdered in front of him on a live video feed, a frustrated Dugan takes matters into his own hands and starts his own rescue operation, only to stumble across something far more sinister - a rogue salvage operation for a long lost weapon of mass destruction. Isolated at sea on an old tanker previously destined for the ship breakers, Dugan and his hastily assembled little force of Russian mercenaries find themselves the last line of defense between the world and a terrifying bio-weapon.
Weaving historical fact with speculative fiction, Deadly Coast takes the listener from London board rooms into the very real world of modern day pirates - and their victims.

great action story and reading

Where does Deadly Coast rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have listened to many and put this among the top 10 percent.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes. The risks involved and potential loss of key characters was plausible as was the overall premise behind the story.

Any additional comments?

This is a good series and I would like to see it continued.

Just hooks you in!

Second of the series. I like the intelligent structure, informative marine scenarios and particularly the respectful and light-hearted inclusion of the Russian ex-special forces operatives on the side of the good guys for once.
The post novel notes were greatly appreciated to ground us in what was factually and chillingly accurate and what was the subject of artistic licence. A delicate line well trod.
Thank you. Most enjoyable.

Exciting

Fast paced and exciting. A very good story line that was easy to follow and identify with. I didn't want to put the book off at any point.
