The Wrecking Crew is a depth charge of sheer adventure, delivering you into unique worlds you never thought you'd visit alongside a collection of badass characters you can't help but love. You'll find yourself holding your breath for pages at a time as they effortlessly melt away, and when this one's over, like any good roller coaster, you'll get back in line, ready for more.(Fred Venturini, author of The Heart Does Not Grow Back)
The Wrecking Crew is a fast paced mystery in the best tradition of Clive Cussler and John Grishom. Well written and scientifically accurate, Taylor Zajonc takes contemporary headlines and environmental issues and weaves them into a roller coaster ride of intrigue and adventure. At times I found myself holding my breathe while turning the page!(Richie Kohler, author of Mystery of the Last Olympian)
An exciting, fast-paced, adventure-action novel complete with evil corporate guys, pirates, boats, a submarine, diving, drones, and massive shoot-ups. If you enjoy Clive Cussler novels, you'll love The Wrecking Crew.(Bernie Chowdhury, author of The Last Dive)
“Zajonc’s expertise in deep-water diving along with an action-packed storyline combine to deliver a tight thriller that is part Johnny Quest and part Bourne Identity.”(- Daniel H. Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of Robopocalypse)
Taylor Zajonc’s debut goes above and beyond the regular shoot-em up by delving into subtle environmental and economic factors affecting 21st century geopolitics. With lovably flawed heroes that jumped off the page, THE WRECKING CREW is smart, highly-readable story of adventure and romance on the high seas. I look forward to the next episode.(- Christine Negroni, author of Lost and Confounded Investigating the World’s Most Mysterious Air Crashes from the Hawaii Clipper to Malaysia 370 coming in 2016 from Penguin Books)
When a tide of plague and death sweeps over the lawless Somali coast, an unlikely crew must join forces to fight a billionaire industrialist and the sinister mercenary forces of his artificial island city. (Publisher)

If I had to name a weakness of the novel, it would have to be that the characters don't always react to events in a realistic way; Jonah's crew manages to be a little too sanguine about being put in such serious life-and-death, kill-or-be-killed situations over and over again. However, every character in the story is still quite vibrant and distinctive, much more so than you might expect from a book in this genre. Among others, the cast includes a cheerful, pop-culture-referencing, gay Somali pirate and a seasteading billionaire from the dreams of Randian anarcho-capitalists.
