Publisher's Summary

Before he was anointed to carry on the legacy of Robert Ludlum's Janson Command series, and before he collaborated with Clive Cussler on the fan favorite Isaac Bell series, Justin Scott created this suspenseful adventure tale, a novel of love and revenge set on the high seas. Written in 1978, this is considered by many to be one of the best maritime thrillers of all time. As an expert in the world of ships and sailing, Justin Scott creates an authentic maritime world, making The Shipkiller all the more thrilling because it could be a true story. Audible favorite Marc Vietor brings this suspenseful adventure tale to vivid life with his exciting and well-paced narration.


What the Critics Say

“A stunner. Absolutely riveting. A marvelously taut, brilliantly told story of revenge, and the sea, and the dark forces than can shape the human condition.” (Robert Ludlum)

Great Story

As a sailor, I enjoyed visuals of sailing through the oceans and experiencing the good and the bad. I enjoyed listening to the use of maritime terminology and found found no flaws throughout the story. Whether you know nothing about life on the water or are a seasoned sailor, you will find this story engaging and exciting. I couldn't stop listening to it and twice found myself falling asleep late into the evening listening to the story and then having to backtrack first thing in the morning to find where I left off.

For this book I'll write a review

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, this is a great book that I've read several times. I was estatic to see it as an Audible selection and for this book, and this book only, I'll take the time to write a review.

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

Great sailing and adventure story. For those who sail, the description of sailing was spot on. If you don't sail, it won't take away from the adventure and intrigue of the story.

Have you listened to any of Marc Vietor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not heard him before. He did a great job with this narrative.
