Wilbur Smith sets his vividly realistic novels on the razor's edge between human courage and nature's wrath. In Hungry as the Sea, this master storyteller takes us to the frigid South Atlantic, where one man fights for his life-- and for redemption.
Nicholas Berg is on a daring rescue mission. One of his former ships is being lashed against the cliffs of Cape Alarm and is surrounded by survivors clinging to their boats. Berg has gambled everything on reaching the Golden Adventurer before a competitor and a violent storm to win a fortune in salvage fees. If he succeeds, however, the real danger will only just begin . . ..
From the power of a relentless ocean to the hunger of men to survive upon her, this is a towering novel of adventure, love and the daring of the human soul.
Nicholas Berg stepped out of the taxi on to the floodlit dock and paused to look up at the Warlock. At this state of the tide she rode high against the stone quay, so that even though the cranes towered above her, they did not dwarf her.
