The Tom Dugan Thrillers

Meet Tom Dugan, a globe-trotting marine consultant and very part-time spook with a rare talent for finding trouble. 

From the high seas to the boardrooms and back alleys of London and Singapore, DEADLY STRAITS is fast-paced, multilayered and gripping, with enough twists and turns to satisfy even the most demanding fan of political intrigue. Life is complex, and so are the most realistic and satisfying thrillers. DEADLY STRAITS is one of them. Find out for yourself.

"Few experiences are more rewarding than delving into a well-written novel by a subject matter expert. In Deadly Straits, McDermott masterfully combines the details of international politics with an intensely personal story of struggle and desperation." 

          Steven Konkoly - USA Today best-selling author of The Rescue

Take a ship hijacked by murderous pirates, its crew held hostage. Add a fortune in sunken treasure, guarded by an aging, unstable Nazi bioweapon. Stir a bit and things get really interesting. Based on a true story.

"Deadly Coast was absorbing. So much so, I asked my wife to stop talking to me; which is never a good idea."

Jesse Thorson - Amazon Reviewer

Human Trafficking. Modern day slavery. A crime all around us, hidden in plain sight. The story is fiction. The tragedy is all too real. A tale of triumph and retribution.

"McDermott explores his subject in depth and writes a convincing if at times terrifying tale that’s not for the squeamish. A taut, well-written tale."

Joseph Harris - Amazon Reviewer
