David Poyer's novels have won millions of readers worldwide, fusing vivid adventure with an unparalleled knowledge of the sea and the men and women who work and fight there. In Louisiana Blue, black sheep Lyle "Tiller" Galloway, broke and on the run from his Colombian ex-employers, leaves Hatteras Island for Louisiana's Gulf Coast. He worked its oil rigs before, years ago, doing the toughest, most dangerous kind of diving, under conditions that used men up and sometimes killed them. But the pay and the things it bought - women, drugs, booze, and freedom - were worth the risk. Now he's ten years older. Robots do the deep diving, and work's hard to find for a man with a prison record. Then a call from a little-known outfit named DeepTech leads Tiller to Pandora 2000, an enormous rig far out in the Gulf of Mexico. He'll be working a thousand feet down, with a mixed crew of ex-cons, loners, and renegades, developing a major oilfield with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake. But something's wrong. A fatal crash, another man's wife, the strain and danger of saturation diving, a greedy, unscrupulous boss...it begins to add up. And when Galloway gets an unusually lucrative offer, he can't turn it down. Even though his choice may end in catastrophe - not only for himself, but for the whole Gulf Coast. Louisiana Blue is heart-stopping undersea adventure, gritty and tense, with supercompressed suspense and a flawed, tough, self-questioning hero in the tradition of John D MacDonald's Travis McGee.
