The Phantom Patrol

(2011)
A novel by

 
 
Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Johnny Trescott is as smart, tough, and fearless as they come. But he's about to lose everything - his boat, his freedom, and his identity. Long before Tom Hanks as Captain Phillips fell into the hands of modern-day pirates, Johnny faced the same high-stakes action on the high seas.

Johnny's mission is to track down drug runners in the Gulf of Mexico, and he's got his eye on the biggest fish of all - Georges Coquelin. But an SOS from a downed plane that's sinking fast leads him straight to disaster....

Coquelin springs a trap. Stranding Johnny and the plane's passengers on a deserted island, the drug smuggler commandeers Johnny's boat and his name. In the company of a weak-kneed millionaire and a long-legged beauty, Johnny's at the end of his rope - which could turn into a noose around his neck. He's got nothing left to lose...and there's nothing he won't do to reclaim his reputation.

marked a turning point in L. Ron Hubbard's fiction. In writing this story he recognized the vital importance of research and realism. To that end, Hubbard toured Coast Guard vessels and interviewed officers who were actually involved in chasing down drug smugglers. The resulting authenticity and success of the tale was a sign of things to come. Listen to The Phantom Patrol and experience the development of a unique voice in storytelling.
