Beware of what the tide may bring… 

Ethan Hodges is deeply unsettled when thousands of decomposed starfish inexplicably wash up along the shore of Pelican Bay. As the ominous sea epidemic spreads to other marine life, he continues to see a suspicious-looking man loitering on the beach. 

To solve the mystery, Ethan seeks help from longtime friend, Sheriff Dansby, and Reagan Langsley, a beautiful marine biologist from Lighthouse Point. Spurred by curiosity and jealousy, Ethan’s estranged wife, Morgan, joins them in the investigation. 

When the elusive outsider is finally arrested, an enigmatic relationship develops between Ethan and the man. With cautious prodding, Ethan learns that the fate of the world appears to rest in the hands of the tall stranger named…Mr. DM. 

Editorial Reviews: 

“From the first page to the last, this final novel in the Captain Shelby Trilogy gave me goosebumps and I didn’t want to put it down. Full of wisdom, poetry, romance and adventure, Revenge of the Sea is a voyage every mystery lover is looking to undertake.” –Lynn Alexander, author of Man Done Gone and editor of the Atlanta Review 

“A chilling dive into environmental horror and the seductive power of evil. There’s an ocean of talent here.” —Scott Nicholson, bestselling author of Afterburn 

Revenge of the Sea is a richly imaginative tale for the seafaring mystery lover—suspenseful and swirling with mystical phenomena in a sublimely creepy atmosphere.” —EM Kaplan, award-winning author of Dim Sum, Dead Some 

“For me Christiansen’s writing is reminiscent of A Song of Stone by Iain Banks. Sentences read like sheer poetry and the plot pulls you along. It’s a wonderfully dark tale, oceanic with a hint of the demonic too.” —Shani Struthers, author of The Haunting of Highdown Hall 

“Jesse Giles Christiansen writes like a poet. The language of Revenge of the Sea is lyrical and evocative.”—Jen Minkman, author of The Island
