Book Description

Mar 1992
"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. This new edition has been revised by the author to make it even more exciting and authentic.

2.0 out of 5 stars Its like drowning, not pleasant. Give it a miss. 16 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is poorly written and incorrect when it comes to the diving. The character's are badly introduced and you struggle working out who is who and how they relate to each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poyer deserves to be widely read 27 Aug 2010
By John Richard VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Poyer is among the best war/action authors I have ever read, and I've read most of the best I think. His research, technical expertise, and insider knowledge are truly outstanding. His characters are well formed and interesting, not simply archetypal tough guys. The narrative is always compelling with superb storylines, many great little side stories, and rounded incedental minor characters. Deserves to be much more widely read in the UK. If you enjoy accurate, credible war stories, you will love his Dan Lenson, Tiller Galloway, and American Civil War series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tiller Galloway Smokes Dirk Pitt Any Day 15 Jun 2000
By Larry Lozuk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
An author that actually knows something about diving is rare. One of that category that can actually spin a yarn is a gem.
This is the best diving book I've read. It's mostly technically accurate, and the highly fallible leading man is more believable than your usual Roger Ramjet hero type.
I highly recommend the entire series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting book. The best of Poyer's "Blue" books. 26 Jan 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read Poyer's Blue books out of sequence. I read Lousiana Blue first, then Bahamas Blue, The Sea Down Under, and finally Hatteras Blue. I enjoy Tiller Galloway's character, though not as much as Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt.
Although Hatteras Blue does not delve into the technical aspects of diving nearly as deep (no pun intended) as the other books I found it to be more believeable and entertaining.
I discovered Poyer by mistake when someone put a copy of China Sea in my mailbox at work. I find Tiller Galloway in the "Blue" books and W.T. Halvorsen in the "Hemlock County" books to be more interesting than Dan Lenson in the modern Navy books.
I mentioned Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt character earlier. If you like a great adventure book thats a ball to read get a Clive Cussler book. After you've read everything from Cussler sit down with a Poyer book. They are not the quite the same but I find Poyer to be informative and entertaining.

The story if you could suspend rational thought made for an ok read. It was formulaic and predictable. A bit of "Boys from Brasil"
4.0 out of 5 stars Hatteras Blue, Tiller Galloway 25 Mar 2011
By Glenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I expected more, since this was the first of the Tiller Galloway series by Poyer, all of which I'd read. HB was good, just not GREAT like I expected it would be.
