The Black Tide
by Hammond Innes
Publisher:  Doubleday & Company, Inc.
Copyright 1982

An icy fog blankets the coast of Cornwall.  Offshore, barely visible through the mist, a crippled tanker spills thousands of tons of oil into the ocean.  A flame flickers to pinpoint the figure of a lone woman onboard.  Suddenly the sky thunders with an explosion, the sea erupts in flames . . . and a man swears vengeance.

Halfway around the world, the sun blazes over the Persian Gulf, and that same man -- Trevor Rodin -- boards a ship that lies anchored, mysteriously camouflaged, just off the blood-red cliffs that plunge into the sea.  Its crew includes the man Trevor Rodin has sworn to kill.  They are about to embark on a secret voyage -- mission and destination unknown -- carrying a cargo of danger . . . and death.

Racing from the Arabian Sea to the waters of the North Atlantic and finally into the shipping lanes of the English Channel, The Black Tide is just the kind of adult adventure readers have come to associate with the world-famous writer of seagoing suspense, Hammond Innes.
