Derek Stone didn’t want to be on an oil rig off the coast of Tunisia, watching his bride die in a terrorist attack. He didn’t want to be two hundred feet deep in the Mediterranean, out of oxygen and with two divers intent on killing him waiting above. But sometimes you have to do what you don’t want to. Sometimes you don’t have a choice.
The question is: How do you do it and stay alive?
Stone, a commercial oil-field diver, once worked as a saboteur for the Canadian Intelligence Service. Now He’s working for himself—or so he thinks. As his quest for his wife’s murderers leads him through the hills of Malta, the plains of Tunisia, and the coast of Italy, into the byzantine, murky world of spies and counterspies, thieves and betrayers, where nothing is as it seems, Stone begins to realize that he is being subtly manipulated. And the puppetmaster is an international arms merchant, who is busy trafficking in NATO secrets and isn’t about to let anyone get in his way.
STORM TRACK is available from Amazon.
“Highly recommended” for its “nonstop action,” “breathtaking pace,” and “its settings in Italy, Sicily, Malta, and Tunisia.” — William C. McCully, Library Journal
“Storm Track is one of the best researched novels of suspense I’ve ever read, with a wealth of fascinating details about commercial and deep-sea diving, the oil business and oil platforms, shape-memory metals, the island of Malta, and Tunisia. I loved this thriller from first page to last.”
— Suzy Smith, “The Write Word” (author of 30 books including The Afterlife Codes, The Book of James, and Ghost Writers in the Sky)
Ron Terpening is the author of the thrillers Storm Track, League of Shadows, Tropic of Fear, and Nine Days in October. He and his wife, Vicki, along with their four golden retrievers and two horses, live in the foothills of the Tucson mountains.
