"A likeable, smart, tough, but all too human hero. A tense, terrifying thrill ride that twists and turns with dizzying speed.A cracking-good series - action fans need Marvik on their radar." Booklist

When Marvik visits his safe deposit box in his London bank and discovers that a three-and-a-half inch floppy disk he had placed there a few weeks previously has been stolen he is surprised and deeply troubled. What’s more it has been taken only the day before his arrival by a man Marvik has never heard of. 

Puzzled and disturbed, Marvik is left cursing his reluctance to ask his former Royal Marine colleague, intelligence and cyber expert, Shaun Strathen, to open the disk and reveal its contents when he first discovered it in the possession of murdered marine archaeologist, Sarah Redburn. Now its theft indicates that Sarah was killed because of its highly toxic contents.

Convinced it holds the key to the truth behind the deaths of his parents, Marvik, with Strathen’s aid, sets out to track down the thief.  As they follow a trail of abduction and murder it soon becomes clear that the computer disk holds the key to a secret that a ruthless killer is determined must never be revealed.

About Art Marvik

Invalided out of the Royal Marines, Marvik is like a fish out of water, at a loss how to replace the adrenaline-fuelled days of his Special Boat Services career. Then he is approached by Detective Superintendent Crowder of the newly formed UK's Police National Intelligence Marine Squad to work undercover on on dangerous assignments. These take him to helping to solve marine based crimes that stretch back across the decades in SILENT RUNNING, DANGEROUS CARGO and LOST VOYAGE..  But there's still that itch that needs to be scratched - how to come to terms with the past and lay his parents ghosts to rest, killed in an underwater explosion in the Straits of Malacca in 1997.  In DEAD SEA, Marvik finds himself on the trail of the conspiracy behind his parents death and the chance to finally uncover the truth.
