Kurzbeschreibung

When marine engineer and very part-time spook Tom Dugan becomes collateral damage in the War on Terror, he's not about to take it lying down.

Falsely implicated in a hijacking, he's offered a chance to clear himself by helping the CIA snare their real prey, Dugan's best friend, London ship owner Alex Kairouz. Reluctantly, Dugan agrees to go undercover in Alex's company, despite doubts about his friend's guilt. Once undercover, Dugan's steadfast refusal to accept Alex's guilt puts him at odds not only with his CIA superiors, but also with a beautiful British agent with whom he's romantically involved.

When a tanker is found adrift near Singapore with a dead crew, and another explodes in Panama as Alex lies near death after a suspicious suicide attempt, Dugan is framed for the attacks. Out of options, and convinced the attacks are prelude to an even more devastating assault, Dugan eludes capture to follow his last lead to Russia, only to be shanghaied as an 'advisor' to a Russian Spetsnaz unit on a suicide mission.

Deadly Straits is a non-stop thrill ride, from London streets, to the dry docks of Singapore, to the decks of the tankers that feed the world's thirst for oil, with stops along the way in Panama, Langley, Virginia, and Teheran. Richly spiced with detail from the author's 30 years sailing, building, and repairing ships worldwide, it is, in the words of one reviewer, "fast-paced, multilayered and gripping."

READER COMMENTS

"An awesome book! It has a very Tom Clancy feel. Kudos to Mr. McDermott. Well done, Sir."
D. Bosshardt, Amazon - 5 Stars

"An absolute cracker of a thriller, quite simply on a par with Clancy et al. When I'd finished I wanted more! A terrific story superbly written.
'Tao" Amazon (UK) - 5 Stars

"A little Clancy, a bit of Ludlum, and a lot of Mr. McDermott!"
Libby Dunkin, Amazon - 5 Stars

"Move over WEB Griffin, Cussler, & Ludlum. Weaving together come-alive characters, McDermott takes us through an all too realistic plot involving oil tankers used to cause havoc to the worlds' shipping ... a page turner."
Bob Hopfe, Amazon - 5 Stars

"A brilliant thriller. I was quite surprised that this is a first novel. On par with high ranking thrillers. Action non-stop ...a great read."
Cheryl M-M, Amazon (UK) - 5 Stars

"In 1994 (Debt of Honor), Tom Clancy used a jumbo jet as a weapon ... it happened on 9/11. In 2011 R.E. McDermott published "Deadly Straits" where supertankers are used as terror weapons with deadly results. Let's hope we don't look back and say McDermott predicted that. This is a book of action and suspense, well written with multiple plots woven into one coherent whole. I've read several best-sellers that are legends in the genre and this book is as well done as any of them, if not better."
Stephen C. Lovely, Amazon - 5 Stars

"McDermott consistently gets it right. The captains, mates and engineers sound like captains, mates and engineers ... like visiting old friends. Tom Dugan - a skilled professional a bit rough around the edges - works well as the protagonist. Smart and educated, he also regularly gets grease under his nails, and moves easily between action and insight. A book even a thriller skeptic and ship geek can love. A gripping read - highly recommended."
Rick Spilman, The Old Salt Blog - 5 Stars

"In a book that takes no prisoners, McDermott tells a tale of high seas terrorism and tells it well. Go get this one, right now!"
Nancy, Cheryl's Book Nook - 5 Stars

"In 20 years at sea as mate and captain, I've been through the Panama Canal too many times to count, and through the Bosphorus and Malacca Straits as well. You nailed it. Yours was the first novel to convince me the author had been there too. Well Done."
Captain Dave Fath (via email)

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great first effort! 5. Dezember 2011
Von imaham - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was my first purchase for my new Kindle Fire and it did not disappoint.

I have always enjoyed books by the likes of Tom Clancy and Clive Cussler and Mr. McDermott did a fine job of following in their footsteps with this first book. Being ex-Navy Security Group, I found the storyline to be very plausible with a fine mix of both maritime action and the involvement of clandestine forces.

The characters were very believable and I particularly liked the portrayals of the female characters even though the author indicated that he felt less comfortable creating them than with the male characters. The attention to detail with shipboard descriptions was especially good.

I had written on Mr. McDermotts blog after reading the book and especially appreciated a response from him regarding my comments and suggestions. There is no doubt in my mind that readers seeking of a mix of action and adventure will appreciate this offering and I personally look forward to reading his next book, Deadly Coast, when he releases it this next year.

Buy the book and sit back to enjoy a great read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen McDermott Hits the Mark! 26. Dezember 2011
Von VT Ken - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
R.E. McDermott has penned a great thriller in his first attempt out of the box. Written in a fast-paced style, McDermott's unique structure facilitates keeping the various locations and time lines clear. The plot is complex enough to keep the reader interested and the characters are realistic. As a proffessional in the maritime industry I can vouch for the technical accuracy. Would make an excellent movie. I highly recomment this enjoyable read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Three stars 4. September 2012
Von Danie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A good read but slightly confusing in the start. The first part initially read more as a sea faring story than the terrorist/thriller it turned into, especially the flipping back an forth between people and places. However it picks up after Panama and the pace and style changed appropriately into a far more paced and action packed thriller. I would give the latter part of the book four stars over the three stars of the early sections.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing Debut Novel 15. Juli 2011
Von Neal Hock "bookhound78" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
With his debut novel, McDermott sets the bar high--very high. This ambitious novel will keep you turning the pages to get to the thrilling conclusion. This is a truly impressive first book. I look forward to reading more from him. His writing is polished, and he manages to handle multiple plot lines that cover the world over. I was impressed by how smoothly the story flowed. When I found out this was the author's first book, I was utterly amazed. If you enjoy action-packed thrillers that make you feel like you're actually participating in the action, make sure to read Deadly Straits.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fantastic yarn 21. Januar 2012
Von Rich122 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Congradulations to RE McDermott on a great first book. As an avid reader of this genre I couldn't put it down and finished reading it in one long night. McDermott is up there with Clancy,Hagberg, and Flynn to name a few. The plot lines and characters gel with plenty of suspense, action amd personal interests. Tom, Alex, Jesse and Anna have a long career ahead of them. I am looking forward to their next adventure.
