Tortuga Gold

CNN, USA TODAY, the Huffington Post and many other news outlets referred to this novel after Wes' rescue off the coast of Cuba by Carnival Cruise lines. Now you can read the scene that inspired so much discussion.

This is a fun, fast-paced action novel, so throw your seabag aboard Wasafiri to join Taz Keaton and the Mayday Salvage and Rescue gang in fun adventures and a chance at Blackbeard's gold.

Tortuga Gold is a fun action story that follows Taz Keaton’s fast adventures after he rejects his wealthy lifestyle and starts Mayday Salvage and Rescue in search of excitement. After Taz and his two partners race the Panamanian National Police to recover a metal case from the wreckage of a private jet in a muddy river, they meet a man with a coin from an historic but never recovered Spanish shipment that vanished in 1715. From there the adventure rolls from modern day pirates to blood-sucking leeches, exploding yachts to beautiful international competitors and a sea battle with the legendary Black beard himself. This is the first novel in a series involving Taz and Mayday Salvage and Rescue.
