The Deadly Shore

A novel by

The greatest threats come in human form...

Nobody knows what caused the explosion that sent the M. V. Southern Pioneer to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.

For Matthew King, the chief officer, the disaster is an opportunity to regain a command of his own, even if it is only in an open boat with nine other men and three women.

It is the gateway to his own small kingdom, where he can be undisputed ruler - for he has a revolver.

It could be that King is mad, but even a madman takes a deal of overthrowing ...

Battles for power commence between the survivors of the Southern Pioneer.

Though life is threatened by the elements and natural obstacles, the biggest fight for survival was between men.
