Goliath by Shawn Corridan


29532481

Captain Nicholas Borodin and his crew embark upon their first voyage at the helm of the new, revolutionary and very massive oil tanker called the Bennkah, which means Goliath.  The Russian tanker is a ship to end all ships, the largest one ever built.  The Bennkah will hold so much oil that it’s predicted to influence the price of oil around the world.  But early into its voyage on the Bering Sea a fire erupts onboard and Captain Borodin is forced to call for help.

Aboard his salvage boat, Captain Sonny Wade hears the Mayday and rallies his crew to head out and save what they can.  Sonny is not the only one headed towards the ship.  He has some stiff competition from his old boss, the very ambitious Dan Sharpe, who owns the largest and most successful salvage company around.  Dan is also the one who fired Sonny after a disastrous incident that left his reputation and marriage in ruins.  The race is on to see which salvage team can reach the Bennkah first, but both teams are heading into danger.  For as the Bennkah begins to succumb to the fire, the tanker’s captain is the only person aware that there is much more at risk than the oil spilling into the sea.

The characters and storyline are a bit “cookie-cutter” here but if that sounds like a bad thing, it’s not!  I like to read these kinds of adventure thrillers as fluff, meaning that I fly through them without a care in the world and I don’t have to think too much.  That’s good right?  I think so or I wouldn’t continue to read them.  I am also rather fond of stories at sea.  I can’t think of anything more horrifying than being out there with nowhere to go but down!  Always a bit chilling!  Kudos to the authors for what struck me as exceptional descriptions throughout the book.  Clive Cussler and Lincoln & Child fans come to mind when recommending this book.

I want to thank the publisher (Oceanview Publishing) for providing me with the ARC through NetGalley for an honest review.
