Dead Men's Silence
A Chris Black Adventure
The pirates asked for ransom. Chris Black made sure they paid the price.
En route to the Galapagos Islands for a deep-sea diving trip with a group of international college students under his care, marine biologist Chris Black leaves his research vessel for a single night to enjoy dinner with friends. When he returns, the ship has vanished. With crew and passengers on board. Modern-day pirates hijacked the boat, hoping to collect a lucrative ransom. Amidst the storm of the century, indomitable Chris Black chases the pirates from island to island, fighting back to save the students under his care in a battle royal aboard the pirates’ mysterious flagship.
