Not since the first novels about the mutiny on the Bounty has a high seas drama of adventure, politics and treachery, captured the senses as Hell Ship.
In January 1918 a US supply vessel, the USS Cyclops, set sail with an angry crew and a bitter captain. Forty of the men had just brought accusations against him for drunkenness and abuse. Every league she sailed tensions increased. The captain had the Exec. arrested. He treated the men like dogs and began walking the bridge at night in his longjohns and a derby hat. By the time the vessel made an unscheduled stop at Barbados, she was a hell ship. After the great ship left, she vanished, leaving in her wake rumors of mutiny and an illegal execution at sea.

I am not sure what i can say about this book but "Fantastic !!" If you are a newbie or an old timer to the Bermuda Triangle, you will find this the best book written on the USS Cyclops. While no one knows the true fate of the ship, the author weaves in little known facts into the story so that it reads like a historical novel, but with a twist ! If you love a true mystery, the story of the vanishing of the Cyclops has everything you need.A tyrannical captain, a beloved 1st officer thrown in the brig,a crew on the verge of mutiny as some have nothing to lose.... This is a true story and should have been made into a movie years ago ! Do yourself a favor and order this book !!
