When nature filmmaker Sally Moffitt makes a terrifying discovery, she joins forces with charter captain David Hope to find the truth - an endeavor that plunges them into the darkest depths of the sea where they are forced to fight for survival when they stumble upon an aquatic experiment that has gone horribly wrong.

HARPERCOLL

With his electrifying, lightning-paced thrillers Fire and Ice, Red Sky at Morning, and Buried at Sea, Paul Garrison firmly established himself as the premier author of contemporary high seas adventures. And now he plunges us into perilous waters once again with a spellbinding tale of danger, unnatural phenomena, and technology gone mad.

A charter captain in the British Virgin Islands, David Hope is a man severely shaken by personal loss and looking for nothing more than one last client to round out the season. At first it seems Sally Moffitt is his salvation. Beautiful and reckless, a filmmaker specializing in the mysteries of the deep, she meets David in a Tortola bar. And before long they are riding the placid Caribbean waters aboard David's catamaran, Oona, carrying a cache of "liberated" film equipment.

They aren't alone. There is something swimming beneath the surface, sleek and frightening -- an inexplicable perversion of the natural order never before caught on film . . . until now. No sooner is Sally's precious footage shot and secured than they are hailed by a huge, elaborately fitted research vessel -- a towering high-tech windjammer under the command of one William Tree.

Though charmed by the amiable, obese, and wildly eccentric Tree -- a scion of one of America's wealthiest and most powerful families -- David and Sally are not ready to trust him with their discovery, for the big man knows more than he is letting on. And he would brush them aside as easily as he would an annoying insect in his singleminded pursuit of a dark and brilliant vision that is slowly coming to light -- one that the whole world will recognize ... and fear.

But David and Sally have something Tree desperately needs, and they intend to keep it hidden -- until catastrophe strikes. A nightmare uncontained and all too real is rising up from the depths, setting the two adventurers off on a breakneck hunt for answers to the greatest and most devastating mystery the seas have ever nurtured -- a mystery that is now, ruthlessly and relentlessly, hunting them....

Crackling with tension and alive with the salt-spray-tinged authenticity that is Garrison's trademark, Sea Hunter is a magnificent voyage of uncharted waters, as deep and mysterious as the ocean itself.
