Publisher's Summary

In the wake of his best-selling thriller Deadly Straits, which drew comparisons to Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler, and W.E.B. Griffin, newcomer R.E. McDermott is back with an action-packed sequel.

Dugan thought Somali pirates were bad news. Then it got worse.

As Tom Dugan and Alex Kairouz, his partner and best friend, struggle to ransom their ship and crew from murderous Somali pirates, things take a turn for the worse. A US Navy contracted tanker with a full load of jet fuel is also hijacked, not by garden variety pirates, but by terrorists with links to Al Qaeda, changing the playing field completely.

With a possible link between piracy and terrorism now in play, the US and British governments order the halt of all negotiations for captive ships, and enraged pirates ratchet up the mistreatment of the captive crews. When one of his crewmen is murdered in front of him on a live video feed, a frustrated Dugan takes matters into his own hands and starts his own rescue operation, only to stumble across something far more sinister - a rogue salvage operation for a long lost weapon of mass destruction. Isolated at sea on an old tanker previously destined for the ship breakers, Dugan and his hastily assembled little force of Russian mercenaries find themselves the last line of defense between the world and a terrifying bio-weapon.

Weaving historical fact with speculative fiction, Deadly Coast takes the listener from London board rooms into the very real world of modern day pirates - and their victims.

Could Not Stop Listening

Would you listen to Deadly Coast again? Why?

Yes. It was a consistently flowing storyline that kept me involved in the book to the point of not wanting to stop listening and to discover the next twist of the plot.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Deadly Coast?

The ending of Deadly Coast, when the pirates were given the two tankers was most memorable to me. It was a perfect ending to the entire storyline.

What about Todd Haberkorn’s performance did you like?

I liked his ability to keep the storyline moving.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES! I could not stop listening to it or even go to sleep until I finished it.

Any additional comments?

Now having read both books, I am convinced that RE McDermott is capable of producing a far better book than Tom Clancy. His books are fast paced and have great plots and storylines. I can barely wait until the next book. I am hooked.

great action story and reading

Where does Deadly Coast rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have listened to many and put this among the top 10 percent.

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

Yes. The risks involved and potential loss of key characters was plausible as was the overall premise behind the story.

Any additional comments?

This is a good series and I would like to see it continued.

Death Below The Waves

Many times we reAd about about biological weapons in vials on sunken ships. The liquid gas in these vials were not what the book said, but one WAS there.

Couldn't wait tonneau the next chapter!

First time for an audio tape, used it to travel 1750 km, last weekend . Bob is such a great author, I really appreciate his limited swearing , instead concentrating on amazing detail which puts you in the situation. Was reluctant to stop and fill the gas tank! Narration with different accents was superb! This is my third novel, and won't be my last! Must read ( or listen)

Fantastic listen

Would you listen to Deadly Coast again? Why?

Yes. It was a consistently flowing story line that kept me involved in the book to the point of not wanting to stop listening and to discover the next twist of the plot.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dugan is the hero, but pirate characters and Russians were interesting. Dugan is so much fun as he gets into scraps and saves the day.

Which character – as performed by Todd Haberkorn – was your favorite?

Tom Dugan. Though ALL of Todd Haberkorn's performance was high quality.

*Argh" says the pirate!

I got this for free for a honest review, and that is what you get: A honest Norwegian!

So i loved book 1 in this "series", and let me say something about that at first: NO you don't need to read book 1 before book 2! When that is said: I am happy i did! So, back too the book: This is as good as book 1, just with pirates! I never feel bored, and this book makes it difficult to do other things wile listening, because it drags you down with it. Todd Haberkorn voice fits again, and i feel lucky for listening to a book read by him! I am happy to say that this book is as great as i was thinking it would be. Wow, i am so happy!

Fascinating look at the problem of piracy

Great read from one of my new favorite authors . This is a awesome follow up to the first Tom Dugan book. Loved the creative, if temporary, solution to Somalian piracy.

Fast paced and exciting. A very good story line that was easy to follow and identify with. I didn't want to put the book off at any point.
