About Art Marvik
Former Royal Marine Commando, Special Boat Services Officer Art Marvik is tough, highly trained, fearless, intelligent and fit. He isn’t bound by the rules of law. But injuries inflicted while in combat have forced him to leave the marines and seek a new life in Civvy Street. He thought he’d be able to adjust and carve out a new career for himself on the sea, but his first job as a private maritime security operative goes very wrong when the luxury motor cruiser he was travelling on and had been detailed to guard, gets attacked by pirates in the Indian Ocean, and Marvik finds himself with a bullet in his shoulder and the boat’s owner dead. He failed on his first mission in civilian life, and Silent Running opens with him reeling from it.
Marvik’s not sure what lies ahead for him but when his former Royal Marine comrade, Shaun Strathen, enlists his help to find a missing computer scientist and a former girlfriend of Marvik’s goes missing after visiting him in his remote Isle of Wight cottage Marvik finds himself attached to the UK's newly formed and covert National Marine Intelligence Squad (NIMS) led by Detective Chief Superintendent Crowder. Silent Running, the first in the series, launches Marvik on a new career as a marine investigator.
