* I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review *
This is the first time I have read anything from Lyle Howard and I was hooked from the start.
Going into this book I wasn’t really sure what to expect, and I was really surprised by how engrossing the story was. The start see a couple of men board a ship out at sea, I guess you would call them Pirates – the ship in question is eerily quite and at first I thought that it was a ghost ship. Then the men see shadows out of the corner of their eyes before everything goes black…
That was the hook for me, I wanted to know more about this ship and was strange things were going on below its decks.
Set in the Florida Keys, Cal runs a bar and when encounters a stunning young woman with a decrepit man in a wheelchair he is instantly committed to finding out more about her. He then discovers that a massive boat that is being docked behind his bar belongs to her and the old man, something set him off to want to investigate the ship. This leads him and his police friend to discover some things they shouldn’t, and that leaves their life hanging on the line.
This is brilliant book and I loved the concept that the author has created for the ship, the crew on board, and the old man – brilliant idea, and not one I have ever encounted before in all the books I have read. It did leave a few unanswered questions though at the end but I loved it and read it in a day – it was that good I couldn’t put it down.
You can get you copy from Amazon =)
