Book Review: Non-Hazardous Material by Fred Lockwood

Published

on

Non-Hazardous Material is the latest book in the Jack Collier Series by Fred Lockwood.  Our story begins with one of our protagonists Sandro finding himself in serious trouble with the police and with no recollection of what happened.  With the future of Marine Salvage & Investigation Company uncertain, as well as Sandro’s future, will Jack and Sandro get to the truth before time runs out?

With everything on the line, Jack attempts to salvage the cargo of “non-hazardous material” from a sunken freighter while a shaken Sandro prepares for a legal battle.  Will the Marine Salvage & Investigation company be left without one of their founders?  Can Jack help his friend without aiding criminals?

As Sandro’s reputation and freedom are threatened and a lucrative contract hangs in the balance, can Sandro’s lawyers and the police investigations uncover the real story? 

In his latest book, Non-Hazardous Material, Fred Lockwood delivers a gripping read once again, with realistically portrayed details of cargo salvage and well researched technicalities of saturation diving.  This is a quick page turner with our heroes fighting for justice and dive adventures in the cold North Sea.  A warning for some readers, this book contains description of sexual assault which some readers may find upsetting or triggering. 

As with the whole series so far we found it an entertaining read and look forward to the next in the series.  For more information about Fred Lockwood’s Jack Collier Series, you can check out the reviews of his previous books here on Scubaverse.
