Always a good, suspenseful read with Hall, who manages to keep you on the edge of your seat without a "cliffhanger" every 3 pages.

I like how he's bringing all of the characters from the different books together. And I Adore Alex' dad Lawton.

James W. Hall was unfamiliar to me when I read this book. It was an interesting read and a little unusual but it is certainly worth reading. The plot is enjoyable and you get caught up in the story and want it to end according to your plan.

Would be happy to read other books by this author because he knows how to write.

Do you believe that there are modern day pirates? Well this book talks about pirates in the area of Flordia and what they might be up to. We slide into the world of priates when the author has one of the characters , who is the son of a mafia don, proclaim that he is a pirate. Interesting read. One of those kind of books you bring to the beach with you.

This is my first James Hall book, and it will most likely be my last. I was really disappointed in the convoluted plot and the fractured storyline. I didn't much care for the characters, either; they were superficial and one-dimensional and their relationships with one another didn't make much sense. This is not a book I would recommend to anyone.
This is another fine entry in series featuring Thorn, that off-the-grid, fly-tier from Florida. A former flame is the reason he's dragged into a scheme of modern day pirates. This is pretty much like Hall's other Thorn books and it's nice to hook up with an old friend.
I could not finish this felt all characters unbelievable and could not care what happened very rare for me not to finish book especially as at least half way through
a little slow to start but still enjoyable. part of a series with the same character. not necessary to read in order, but would add depth to the storyline.
Not too bad of a book. At least I finished it, which is more than I can say for some more highly touted books I have picked up.
I really did not like this book. I barely managed to finish it and it is definitely the last one by this author that I read
three and a half stars. pure fun.
Great story about modern piracy.
