In 1945, in the waning days of World War II, two boys stow away aboard the U.S.S. Indianapolis as it sails from Guam to the Philippines. Separated from their parents at the start of the war, the boys hope to reunite with their family. But their hopes are dashed when a Japanese submarine sinks the ship in the middle of ocean.
Patrick and Teddy, with the help of their friend—an injured Marine named Benny—are not too worried at first. They expect to be rescued soon. They can handle the thirst and the dehydration. Even the occasional madness that seems to possess some of the ship’s surviving crew.
But as they float along in the water, they discover that the real danger lies beneath. And it has teeth. Based on true events, Michael P. Spradlin brings readers another harrowing tale of survival and suspense. Pre-order your copy today from your favorite bookseller.
