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.

Could Not Stop Listening

Would you listen to Deadly Coast again? Why?

Yes. It was a consistently flowing storyline that kept me involved in the book to the point of not wanting to stop listening and to discover the next twist of the plot.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Deadly Coast?

The ending of Deadly Coast, when the pirates were given the two tankers was most memorable to me. It was a perfect ending to the entire storyline.

What about Todd Haberkorn’s performance did you like?

I liked his ability to keep the storyline moving.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES! I could not stop listening to it or even go to sleep until I finished it.

Any additional comments?

Now having read both books, I am convinced that RE McDermott is capable of producing a far better book than Tom Clancy. His books are fast paced and have great plots and storylines. I can barely wait until the next book. I am hooked.
