Publisher's Summary

"A riveting tale of intrigue and terrorism, Key West characters in their full glory! Fast paced and continually changing direction Mr Becker has me hooked on his skillful and adventurous tales from the Conch Republic!"

It’s easy to become invisible in the Florida Keys. Mac Travis was doing his best to keep a low profile: diving, fishing and enough salvage work to pay his bills. It’s a good life until he discovers something while spearfishing that could change the pristine Keys forever. His drunken crewman soon lets out the secret and his life is instantly changed.

A corrupt presidential candidate will do whatever it takes to hide his secret. An exiled coke dealing terrorist sees this as his opportunity to redeem himself. A local con man loyal only to himself is looking for a quick payoff.

When Mac’s friend and mentor is injured, his estranged daughter reluctantly comes to his aid. The two soon put aside their differences and join forces to bury the secret where it won’t be found.

Very Entertaining

What did you love best about Wood's Reef?

I like the storyline about the 2 nukes being dropped 50 years ago. Stuff like this really did happen and who knows what is out there in the oceans....

What other book might you compare Wood's Reef to and why?

Nothing specific to compare it to. Just a good mystery like a Ken Follett book.

Which character – as performed by Paul J McSorley – was your favorite?

Paul J McSorley did a great job with all the voices. My favorites are Mac and Trufante

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

I listen to Audible books on my way to work and home and would sit in my car longer after I got there to listen to Wood's Reef

Any additional comments?

Entertaining book with a good storyline and characters. Narrator did an excellent job.

Nukes missing?

This book starts during the Cuban Missile where nuclear devices are accidentally dropped off the Florida Keys. The bombs are found 50 years later the devices are found by Mitch and Woody. After attempting to get the government to retrieve them terrorist also become involved. The person who dumped the device is now running for President and it becomes known that he covered up the incident and Woody is one of 3 people who know of the incident.

This book is full of excitement and political maneuvering and there is never a moment when you know how it will all end.

The narration is excellent.

This book was provided free of charge with expectation of an honest review.

A strong 2nd book to this great series!

The author writes in such a way, that the story just flows. Great storyline with interesting and likable characters. If you love great adventure/action stories you will enjoy this. Highly recommend starting at book one, although not absolutely required. You won’t regret it. The narrator has great timing and flow, doing a wonderful job bringing the story to life.


I have received a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

Mac Travis

Okay let's state the obvious first, Steven Becker is a well rounded writer and Paul McSorley is an AMAZING narrator. Now with that being said Mac Travis kept me on the edge of my seat and I finished listening to it in one day. I fell in love with characters and can't wait to listen to the next one.

Poorly Written and a waste of time

What disappointed you about Wood's Reef?

Author knows nothing about radio communiications of pilots and air traffic control, unbelievable shark attacks, poorly spoken accents of the terrorists and the access to the Vice President of the United States in Florida. This book should never have been published.

What do you think your next listen will be?

A Western or mystery.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Accents were overdone.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

Any additional comments?
