From the Publisher
Dugan trusted the CIA. That was his first mistake. There were more.
Meet Tom Dugan, a wise-cracking, globe-trotting consultant with issues.
When the CIA asked Dugan to use his job as cover to 'take a few pictures,' he readily agreed, unaware his life was about to be changed forever and not in a good way.
When he's set up and falsely accused of terrorism, the CIA offers him a deal, IF he betrays his best friend.
With international terrorism and the weaponization of oil as a backdrop, Deadly Straits is a taut thriller that focuses on the timeless questions of loyalty and love of family. What will a man do to save his only child? When is the price of loyalty to a friend too high?
If you enjoy Forsyth, Ludlum, Cussler, and Clancy, Deadly Straits will keep you turning pages late into the night.
You'll be up way past your bedtime.
"Few experiences are more rewarding than delving into a well-written novel by a subject matter expert in the world presented. In Deadly Straits, McDermott masterfully combines the details of international politics with an intensely personal story of struggle and desperation." Steve Konkoly - USA Today best-selling author of THE RESCUE
"In a book that takes no prisoners, McDermott tells a tale of high seas terrorism and tells it well. Go get this one, right now!" Cheryl's Book Nook
"McDermott consistently gets it right. Tom Dugan - a skilled professional a bit rough around the edges - works well as the protagonist. Smart and educated, he regularly gets grease under his nails, and moves easily between action and insight. A book even a thriller skeptic can love. A gripping read - highly recommended." Rick Spilman, The Old Salt Blog
"After reading Deadly Straits, I no longer await the next Clancy novel. I'm waiting for the next McDermott.novel." Jeff Edwards - Author of The Sea of Shadows
Warning, 'unputdownable' no matter where you are.
Whether you're relaxing at home or enjoying your favorite vacation spot, Deadly Straits is a 'ripped from today's headlines' thriller you won't want to put down.
Even as you read this, Iran's increasingly aggressive acts in response to US and EU sanctions threaten neutral tanker traffic through the vital Straits of Hormuz. The flow of Middle Eastern oil is less secure than it has been in recent memory.
Written by an oil industry insider and shipping industry veteran, Deadly Straits is a pulse-pounding tale of what could be tomorrow's headlines. If you like non-stop action coupled with spot on realism, you'll love Deadly Straits.
Deadly Straits Will Keep You Guessing
You'll find no superheros, just ordinary people thrust into extraordinary situations and trying desperately to rise to the occasion. From the decks of tankers on the high seas to the boardrooms and back alleys of London and Singapore, Deadly Straits is fast-paced, multilayered and gripping, with enough twists and turns to satisfy even the most demanding fan of political intrigue.
Life is complex, and so are the most realistic and satisfying thrillers.
Deadly Straits is one of them. Find out for yourself.

About the Author
McDermott's work is characterized by meticulous research and a gritty, seldom-matched realism. He strives to make his protagonists fallible humans - not superheroes, just ordinary people who screw up, but rise to life's challenges in extraordinary situations.
Bob lives on the outskirts of Nashville, Tennessee with his patient wife (and chief proofreader) and splits his time between their condo on Old Hickory Lake and a rural retreat in the Tennessee woods with no phone, no email, and no internet. He likes that just fine and his wife is even more enthusiastic about it since they got a working toilet.
