The Green Tan is a novel about commercial divers in the late 20th Century working in the shadow of sudden, indifferent death in the mega-money industry of the underwater oil fields. It follows Mike and Nick, two commercial diving partners, in an series of increasingly dangerous jobs whose events escalate to the brink of where even the best of divers will meet his fate. It is a story of tough men, their loves and their crashed marriages. There are comedic moments and there are fearful moments. The story reveals the divers' better sides and their worst sides. It is a raw, graphic story of sex, drugs and violent endings. It is the story of how one diver, whose personality was formed in the elite military cadre of special forces, deals with the intense pressure and finally the infamy of a corrupt company whose executive who puts divers in harms way while he preys on their wives. It is an action story with a love story entwined around it. There are existential epiphanies and flashes of black humor. It is the story of one man's moral evolution; it is the story of his emergence and ultimate justice -- though not the kind you will find in a court of law.
