"Tiller Galloway is a terrific hero . . . A fast-paced, convincing thriller set in an unusual locale." --Baltimore Sun "Plot twists and turns that chart a tricky course through the deep waters of human need and greed." --Ocala Star-Banner “Local atmosphere and a good knowledge of treacherous currents keep things on course.” --The London Times On a moonless night in 1945, a destroyer sinks a U-Boat fifty miles off Hatteras Island, the Graveyard of the Atlantic. Over a half-century later, the mummified corpses of three crewmen, wrapped in a decaying rubber raft, come to light during excavation for a new shopping development. Their reappearance unleashes neo-Nazis, drug smugglers, and a shadowy "historian" with an ominous plan. When Hatteras native, salvage diver, and ex-con Lyle "Tiller" Galloway III starts digging into the discovery, he's forced by an island family to take on a dangerous silent partner. Together, he and Shadrach Aydlett will discover what actually happened in the Carolina sand hills so long ago, and what everyone's really after . . . tons of long-lost Nazi gold. And finally, he’ll battle a ruthless killer many fathoms beneath the stormy sea off Cape Hatteras. HATTERAS BLUE's rare original hardcover sells for over a hundred dollars.
