Publisher's Summary

Hungry as the Sea is an enthralling story of revenge, adventure and romance from best-selling author Wilbur Smith.  

'Nick went head down, finning desperately to catch the swirling body which tumbled like a leaf in high wind. He had a fleeting glimpse of Baker's face, contorted with terror and lack of breath, the glass visor of his helmet already swamping with icy water as the pressure spurted through the non-return valve. The Chief's headset microphone squealed once and then went dead as the water shorted it out.'  

Robbed of his wife and ousted from his huge shipping empire, Nick Berg is hell-bent on vengeance. It is the sea which gives him his opportunity. When his arch-rival's luxury liner is trapped in the tempestuous Antarctic, Nick stakes all to pit his powerful salvage tug, the Warlock, in a desperate race against time and the elements....

Fun book

Although not part of series I wish it was. the book is relationship and action packed with a tongue of science fiction.... carried to extremes....

Sea disaster

This book was very exciting and it made me think about how much seaman are at the mercy of the sea. Also the care and the attention that needs to go in the construction of ships, Cheep is not the best.

Unbelievably outdated and tactless.

What is probably a very good story utterly ruined by the thinly drawn, atrociously written female characters. Found myself literally yelling out loud every time a woman’s breasts were unnecessarily detailed in excessive and impossible ways. Couldn’t finish this book - tried several times and just got frustrated. Wilbur Smith is of his time and it’s really not for me. Don’t touch it if you’re into realistic women who aren’t obsessed with sex and aren’t just foils to our older gruff male protag. Yawn.

truly tedious

It starts relatively well but quickly desends into utter tedium. The character descriptions of the leading lady were extraordinary. i rarely give up on a book but i couldn't continue with this one
