DAVID POYER's sea career included service in the Atlantic, Mediterranean, Arctic, Caribbean, and Pacific. Tipping Point is the fifteenth in his widely popular series featuring Captain Dan Lenson. Poyer's work has been required reading in the Literature of the Sea course at the U.S. Naval Academy, along with that of Joseph Conrad and Herman Melville. He lives on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
"Don't expect any of the plotlines to be wrapped up neatly, as
in so many novels. This is an ongoing sea saga filled with more
trouble than any captain and crew should have to endure.
First-class storytelling by a master of the genre." --Kirkus
"Poyer combines a deep knowledge of all things seaworthy (including the latest technology) with a grasp of geopolitics, insight into the human heart, and a philosophic temperament. Try this book - you may be hooked." -Christianity Today
Praise for The Cruiser:
"The action is so detailed that readers paying close attention could take over the captain's chair and drive the boat themselves." --Publishers Weekly"Poyer is a master of the modern sea adventure, pitting both men and women against unseen enemies and turbulent waves." --Kirkus
