About the Book

Combining realism and intrigue, the author delivers a gripping tale of high adventure under the sea.  Larry Miles, an ex-marine haunted by ghosts from his past, goes on a mission that proves to be the ultimate test of his will to survive.  He leads a team of six men on a saturation diving job to salvage a freighter in the North Sea.  In a region with the most treacherous weather on the planet, Artic storms, cold, fog, and brutal currents, an already dangerous operation turns into a nightmare when the divers discover nuclear weapons in the sunken vessel.  A chaotic scenario unfolds, when miles finds himself battling Russian arms smugglers and a traitor among his team.  Miles becomes the only men who can prevent a nuclear weapon from being delivered to a rogue state, but he is trapped in a pressurized compartment, and faces certain death when the salvage vessel threatens to sink in a raging storm.

Filled with underwater gadgetry, electric submarines, manned submersibles, and eccentric characters, Salvage of the Tatiana gives the reader a glimpse of the extraordinary and dangerous world of commercial diving.
