A naval ship, traveling through a hurricane, with a serial killer on board! How can this not be an exciting story? “Lockdown” has thrills and intrigue from beginning to end. I don’t usually read much from the military genre, but the plot just sounded too engaging to pass up, and I was not disappointed. Scott Black has crafted a marvelous fictional account based on real events.
Tyler West is leader of a repair and maintenance team on the USS Miller. As the ship pitches and rolls its way through a hurricane, a murderer claims his first victim. The entire crew is put into lockdown while the murder is investigated. Tyler is assigned to search every nook and cranny of the ship for the murder weapon and clothing the killer wore. As the lockdown stretches into 2 and then 3 days, the men are getting restless and Tyler is putting the pieces together to identify the murderer. Is it possible that one of his own team is responsible? What is it that the officers are hiding from the enlisted men? Pick up a copy to find out! This book would be a great pick for military buffs or thriller lovers.
