The pirates asked for ransom. Chris Black made sure they paid the price.
En route to the Galapagos Islands for a deep-sea diving trip with a group of international college students under his care, marine biologist Chris Black leaves his research vessel for a single night to enjoy dinner with friends. When he returns, the ship has vanished. With crew and passengers on board.
Modern-day pirates hijacked the boat, hoping to collect a lucrative ransom. Amid the storm of the century, indomitable Chris Black chases the pirates from island to island, fighting back to save the students under his care in a battle royal aboard the pirates' mysterious flagship.
In the Chris Black Adventures series, marine biologists armed with knowledge and physical prowess fight crime on the open sea and deep under the ocean's surface. Dr. James Lindholm's firsthand experience with the extreme survival conditions of underwater research missions informs all his stories.
