Sinopsis:

It was the largest moving object on the face of the earth, but for Carolyn and Peter Hardin it was a towering wall of steel bursting out of a squall at full speed, bearing down on their ketch Siren. In a few dramatic moments, Siren was shattered by the indifferent juggernaut. Struggling for his life, Peter Hardin felt the hand of his wife being torn from his grip as the huge white letters on the supertanker s stern Leviathan steamed away. Thus begins an odyssey of revenge that embraces the distant waters of the world, from the titanic storms of the South Atlantic to the oil-slicked reaches of the Persian Gulf. Now back in print for the first time in twenty-five years, The Shipkiler is the story of one man determined to win at sea the justice he has been denied on land."

Review:

Definitive. Barker's greatest service is to rescue the family of Charlotte, Emily, and Anne from myth, who were provided particularly hideous stereotypes by Charlotte's first biographer, Elizabeth Gaskell. The doom and tragedy are there.

Barker's updated and enthralling biography of the Bront s carries us deeper into the everyday realities of their strange world. The stuff of lurid legend. --Maureen Corrigan, NPR's "Fresh Air"

Moby-Dick meets Tom Clancy, and what a splash it makes. The Shipkiller kept me up all night. One hell of a sea story. --Christopher Buckley"

A stunner. Absolutely riveting. A marvelously taut, brilliantly told story of revenge, and the sea, and the dark forces that can shape the human condition.--Robert Ludlum

The Shipkiller is a superbly written thriller in which Scott limns his driven people as stylishly as his boats.
