About Goliath

A giant Russian tanker ablaze in the Bering Sea about to create the world’s worst eco-disaster—and not just from the oil

In the Bering Sea, Bennkah, the largest oil tanker ever built, newly commissioned in Vladivostok, Russia, is on its maiden voyage. Well-respected Captain Nicholas Borodin is at the helm, and for a reason only he knows, his agitation is palpable.

Soon an engineer discovers a defect—seemingly minor, but one with disastrous potential. Despite his attempts to correct the problem, a fire erupts, contained at first, then rapidly spreads out of control, consuming the behemoth tanker.

A Mayday call alerts Captain Sonny Wade some two hundred miles from the burning ship. This could be the lifeline that Sonny and his ragtag crew need to save their failing salvage business. But Dal Sharpe, Sonny’s nemesis and former employer—the owner of the largest salvage business in all of the northwest—also hears the call. A heart-stopping race is on to claim the hulk before it contaminates the entire north Pacific Rim.

But Sonny learns there’s more at stake than anyone realizes—a catastrophe of monstrous proportions.


"An ingenious idea. The biggest tanker the world has ever seen, gorged with toxic crude oil, is aground off Alaska. What to do? The pace is fast, the technology accurate and not too much. A good read." —Frederick Forsyth, New York Times best-selling author

"In Goliath, Shawn Corridan and Gary Waid have created a nuanced thriller, layered in ways rarely seen in a debut novel. The authors combine technical knowledge with steadily increasing tension, adding unexpected twists until the reader is left holding his breath in white-knuckled suspense. Highly recommended!" —Allan Leverone, New York Times best-selling author

"From the opening scene, it's clear you’re in the hands of authors who call the ocean, and seafaring ships, home. Characters are well-defined, descriptions are vivid, and the story feels genuine. Goliath is a terrific opening act for Corridan’s and Waid's crew, with undoubtedly many exciting adventures to come." —Alan Jacobson, USA Today best-selling author

"An exciting addition to the world of action and adventure, with all the twists and turns you’d expect from grand masters like Clive Cussler and James Rollins! Hold onto the railing or you’re liable to be tossed overboard, because this is one wild ride!" —Brett Battles, best-selling author of the Jonathan Quinn thrillers

"The authors' seafaring knowledge lends a good deal of nautical vérité to the story and, combined with good character development and pacing, make for an exciting tale. Goliath is a thriller that even a landlubber will appreciate—so climb aboard!" —Thomas Waite, best-selling author of the celebrate Lana Elkins Thriller series

"★ Fans of nautical adventures will be enthralled." —Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"Authors Corridan and Waid deliver an intriguing thriller for those who enjoy sea adventures." —Booklist
