    At the peak of his power, in the 1940s and 1950s, William Francis Gibbs was considered America's best naval architect. His quest to build the finest, fastest, most beautiful ocean liner of his time, the S.S. United States, was a topic of national fascination. When completed in 1952, the ship was hailed as a technological masterpiece at a time when "made in America" meant the best.

    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.

    Alex says: "A great story- well written and performed"

    Would you listen to The Shipkiller again? Why?

    Yes I would, if fact this WAS my second listen. I listened several years ago and thought it was worth a second listen.


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

    As a sailor the plot incorporated enough technically accurate believable twists to keep it surprising and very interesting.
