Book Review: Unlisted Cargo by Fred Lockwood

Published

on

Unlisted Cargo is the fourth book in the Jack Collier series by Fred Lockwood.  Our protagonists Jack and Sandro of Marine Salvage & Investigation Company are approached by Mya Christie, an archeological researcher with a personal interest in lost treasures of Myanmar, to locate “The Sacred Three”.  This modern-day treasure hunt sees our adventurers head out into the tropical Andaman Sea.

With the challenge accepted, will our heroes be able to locate the wreck and complete the salvage operation before other interested parties intervene?  Who will succeed in securing the artifacts and at what cost?  And why the sudden interest of the British government?

In Unlisted Cargo, Fred Lockwood again delivers a fast paced adventure page turner with numerous close calls for our intrepid divers and their crew.  Aside from the seemingly obligatory shark attack sequence, the twists and turns throughout the book are gripping and the technicalities of the diving involved are described in both accurate and realistic detail.  The author’s love of scuba diving definitely comes through on the page.

We are very much enjoying having a diving based adventure/thriller series to read and are eagerly awaiting the next book in the Jack Collier series from Fred Lockwood later this year!
