In exchange for his freedom from a secret Moroccan prison, deep-water salvage diver Jonah Blackwell agrees to lead a covert search for a missing research team in the dangerous coastal waters of Somalia, an area plagued by pirates and a deadly red tide killing all marine life within its reach. But when his expedition threatens the ambitions of billionaire industrialist Charles Bettencourt, Jonah's survival depends on hijacking a hostile submarine and assembling an unproven crew who must simultaneously investigate the source of a mysterious oceanic plague and face down Bettencourt's commandos.

A thrilling, fast-paced adventure set in the world's last frontier, THE WRECKING CREW will resonate with James Rollins and Clive Cussler fans alike.

About the Author

Though he loves covering the expeditions of others, Taylor Zajonc enjoys going on his own even more! This passion has translated into this blog, novels, non-fiction writing and speaking. As a maritime historian, Explorers Club member, shipwreck expert and avid world traveler, Taylor Zajonc's real-life adventures nearly exceed those of his fictional counterparts. His fascination with exploration began when he joined a Russian expedition to the deepest archaeological site on the planet, descending nearly three miles into the abyss of the Bermuda Triangle aboard a Soviet-era submersible. Taylor's debut novel, The Wrecking Crew is a thrilling adventure set in the world's last frontier, a story of a deep-water salvage diver set free from a Moroccan prison and forced to lead a covert mission into pirate-infested Somali waters. When his expedition threatens to expose the true source of an oceanic plague, he must assemble an unproven crew of former enemies and fight for the fate of the entire region. This novel is currently under development with Blank Slate Press with a preliminary release date of February 23, 2016. When not writing or hunting long-lost shipwrecks, Taylor can be found at the dog park or training at his local CrossFit box.
