A novel of ancient Crete, set in 1730 B.C. Tanuati, a young Cretan trader, gets himself into sufficient trouble with pirates, slavers, and the gods that he must move around the eastern Mediterranean in seeking solutions.

From the Publisher:

Although fiction, The Sea Kings has been so scrupulously researched, the reader will be intrigued by both the plot and the information it provides. Cole spent over 20 years researching and visiting the sites in the book, and years writing and polishing it. He is a graduate geologist and professional writer.

From the Author:

The culture of ancient Crete is so appealing to moderns that few of us are uninterested. From art to architecture, these people (called "Minoans" by archaeologists) ring bells of wonder. I've heard an audience literally gasp with delight when shown slides of Minoan carved vases. The palace at legendary Knossos -- estimated to be as big as Buckingham and containing 1500 rooms - was honeycombed with drains for running water and the famous flush toilets. We're talking folks who lived over 3500 years ago. In this limited space, it's impossible to list all the Minoan accomplishments, but there's one that has, for me, profound philosophical meaning. The Minoans were the only world power that apparently eschewed warfare, preferring to build their influence through peaceful trade. How an anyone not admire them?
