Title:  Waterfront Rats

Author: Peter H. Zindler

Publisher:  David Bauer Press

Reviewer: Jeff Edwards – AAA Member

Surging with raw intensity, Waterfront Rats is part high-tech adventure story, part morality tale, and part old-fashioned cliff-hanger.

“Boats” Browder is a crusty old Sailor stationed aboard USS Sheboygan. He’s as gnarled and tough as any boatswains mate who’s ever walked the steel decks of a United States warship. But beneath his grizzled exterior, Boats is not only a warrior and a patriot; he’s a genuinely good man.

When Islamic terrorists seize control of his ship, Boats finds himself pitted against ruthless fanatics who are bent on the nuclear annihilation of ten American cities. Millions of lives are at stake, and time is running out, but Boats doesn’t have to face the threat alone. At his back are Port Engineer Jake Markey, and a Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant who calls himself ‘Deek.’ With his friends at his side, Boats is ready to walk into the gates of Hell, and he just might have to do that very thing.

The crew of the Sheboygan are hostages aboard their own ship, and the terrorists won’t hesitate to murder anyone who shows the slightest sign of resistance. Boats and his buddies go into hiding, skulking through the steel maze of the ship, and waiting for their moment to strike.

Trapped in the middle of all this chaos is Navy Lieutenant Jim Sherock. Born and raised in a Muslim home, Jim has embraced Christianity and America — both to the displeasure of his father. Now he is torn between loyalty to his family, his growing faith in God, and the allegiance he has sworn to his adopted country.

When the bullets start flying, Jim finds himself faced with a choice that no man should ever have to make, because the leader of the terrorist cell is his very own father.

Waterfront Rats is not just a page-turning action thriller. It’s an unflinching look at how horribly the world can go wrong when fanaticism takes the place of faith.
