New Mike Scott Thriller Novella Available for Christmas


The latest thriller novella in the Mike Scott series, Turks and Chaos: Hostile Waters, is now available for pre-order across all ebook formats at a special introductory price, author Eric Douglas announced.

The ninth installment in the Mike Scott series, this story is a thriller novella. It will be officially available on Dec. 25, as a Christmas present to readers. Between now and Christmas day, the story is priced at just $0.99. When the story goes live, the ebook novella price will go up to $2.99. A softcover version of the book will also be available on the release date.

“I wanted to challenge myself with this story a bit. No bringing in outside help or equipment. This story is entirely set on board a liveaboard dive boat,” Douglas said. “Most of the Mike Scott stories feature the location as an additional character, but this was different. It was confining, but also liberating at the same time. I had to focus on characters and limit them to what was onboard.”

It’s up to Mike, the passengers and crew to overcome the pirates and save their own lives. It doesn’t help matters that there is a mole on board feeding the pirates information and they are heading right into a storm. Now they must rebel against the pirates and take the boat back before time runs out…

“Fans of Clive Cussler will enjoy this brand-new novella in the Mike Scott thriller series from Eric Douglas.” Greg Holt, host of the talk radio show ScubaRadio.

“…a great “Murder on the Orient Express” set up going, where everyone is captive and most everyone is suspect. It gives the story a nice whodunit quality…” Suzanne Garrett
