International news photographer Mike Scott is on assignment in The Bahamas working on a story about the recovery being made by Tiger Sharks because of the island-nation’s no take laws. When he discovers several sharks that have been finned and thrown back in the ocean to die, he goes searching for the most dangerous predator in the ocean: Man!
Eric Douglas spent his childhood Sunday nights watching “The
Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau” and dreamed of diving alongside the Captain. He became a diver, and then a dive instructor, meeting his goals and pursuing a life of adventure and travel.
Through his fictional works, Eric take readers on adventures of their own. His stories have everything thriller junkies crave; action, adventure and intrigue, set against a backdrop beautiful locations, the ocean and the environment, and scuba diving. The fast-paced stories are exciting, but Eric also hopes to inspire future generations of explorers and adventurers like Cousteau did for him.
After completing a program at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, Eric jumped into documentary work, creating nonfiction works on lobster divers, war veterans, and cancer survivors.
Five Stars: WindPwrGuy: In this tale, the author took me on a trip to the sunny islands where we got tangled up in a scandal involving environmentalists and those who were, let’s say, destroying the environment. I’ll be reading more by this author for sure.
Five Stars: A New Face on the Tropical Thriller Scene, By M. E. Banks
I love thrillers set in the Keys, Bahamas and such. I saw Land Sharks, decided to give it a try and I’m so glad I did. Mr. Douglas tells good stories from the tropics which remind me of writings by John Cunningham and Rodney Riesel. In fact, I liked it so much I picked up the Mike Scott Thrillers Boxed Set (which includes Land Sharks) to catch up on the stories. You can read and enjoy Land Sharks as a standalone without knowing the back story but I liked it so much I wanted more. Take a chance, you won’t be disappointed. He also has another good series set in Withrow Key which is also worth a look.
