The Night Boat

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

The Night Boat, Robert McCammon’s third published novel, first appeared as a paperback original in 1980. Following on the heels of Baal and Bethany’s Sin, it offered further proof that a writer of great narrative power and limitless potential—a writer who would achieve a significant position in modern popular fiction—had arrived.

The story begins with a vividly written prologue in which a German U-boat—sometimes known as an “Iron Coffin”—attacks an unsuspecting merchant vessel, and is itself attacked by a pair of Allied sub chasers. The action then shifts to the present day and to the idyllic Caribbean island of Coquina, where life is about to change in unimaginable ways. David Moore, a young man with a tragic and haunted past, is skin-diving in the waters off Coquina, searching for the salvageable remnants of shipwrecks. He accidentally detonates a long-unexploded depth charge, uncovering and releasing a submarine that has lain beneath those waters, virtually intact, for decades. The battered vessel that rises to the surface contains a bizarre and terrifying cargo that will transform a once peaceful island into a landscape of unrelenting nightmare.

The Night Boat is a story of cannibalism, ancient voodoo curses, and shambling, undead entities filled with a bottomless rage and an equally bottomless hunger. But it is also the story of a past that refuses to die, that lies in wait just beneath the surface of the unsuspecting present. Furiously paced and viscerally frightening, this horrific early gem is both an outstanding entertainment in its own right and a harbinger of the masterpieces to come.

Customer Reviews

Love every book

I have read every book he has written and I am amazed and nary for more. Such diversity. Great editing too. Not an over use of phrases, which can make one crazy.
Beautifully written. My hands were swearing and my heart was beating so fast at certain points I had to actually put the book down. No kidding.
His writing has such diversity. I await any and every new book.
I would recommend his books to any mystery, horror, archeology, fans about.
