9780965819534: Tournament

In an unprecedented tournament as fierce as the raging sea and the behemoths of its sunless depths, five champion anglers wager a million dollars apiece that one of them is the best.

Ernest Lichine is a sheltered Northerner with a newly acquired fortune who is plunged into an alien world unrestrained by the conventions of his own. A weekend fisherman, he finds himself locked in no-quarter combat with professional boatmen and anglers of international standing. Dazzling, acid tongued Catherine Nettles triumphs over her male rivals at all their games, but she carries the seeds of her own destruction. Horst Triga is an heir to billions for whom riches mean nothing, and winning--everything.

The scorching battle of muscle and machine and obsessions surges from the Yucatan Channel to the Great Barrier Reef, with interludes in opulent resorts where decadence and violence are merely expectable. The competitors fall victim to the hidden terrors and hungers. Most fail. Some die.

For one, the tournament becomes an ocean-spanning odyssey of discovery... and retribution. The survivors persevere, uncertain it is worth the cost. One day, on a howling black sea, they find out.

From the Publisher:

From Captain Ron Hamlin on the "Captain Hook" that caught over 2500 billfish in a single year.

From the Inside Flap:

RON HAMLIN is acknowledged to be one of the world's top captains in deep-sea sport fishing. Since 1971 he has won eight tournaments, accomplished three World Records and four Blue Marlin Records, and holds the Bahamian Record for the First Swordfish on Rod and Reel. As an angler, he has four Black Marlin-each weighing over 1,000 pounds - as part of his own personal record.

The idea of this novel was his, and his experiences and expertise fill its pages.
