A Brock Finlander Novel

Coastal Adventure Series | Book 1

There is more in the water than you know.

When ex-astronaut Brock Finlander tries to reconnect with his long-lost daughter, a marine biologist, they discover strange things happening to marine life on Claw Island.

In a rush to identify why the crabs are growing out of control, they find more than they bargained for.

Now, they have only 72 hours before the cover-up becomes dangerous and unstoppable. But danger never expects to run into a man like Brock Finlander. A man who will not just respond, but will attack it with everything he has: his intellect, his military training, and his family.

But when the animals you’re trying to save become the enemy, how do you fight back?

Together, father and daughter must learn that family comes first before time runs out and they lose each other, and the island, forever.

What they thought they knew about the water was wrong… so very, very, wrong.

If you like thrilling action and heartwarming, endearing characters, you’ll love this coastal action-adventure set in the very center of Maryland’s blue crab population, the Chesapeake Bay, surrounded by NASA, NOAA, the Coast Guard, and the Annapolis Naval Academy.

Retired ex-astronaut, Brock Finlander wants to enjoy the good life, get things back to normal, and forget the past. Despite the things that he had seen over the years, surely, not every legend was true.

But how do you stop an enemy that is spreading like a virus?

Together, Brock and his family must combine all their strengths to put an end to the army of unwelcome visitors, but doing so may come at an unimaginable cost.
