Douglas’ Mike Scott stories are two books in one: An exciting adventure and a travelogue of exotic places we’d all like to visit. I enjoy how he seamlessly works the geography, history, and even the best places to drink, into the story. Oil and Water has put Curacao on my destination wish list. (But not when Mike Scott is there. That guy is trouble!)

Just finished it! I loved it, every bit! It’s a fast, fun exciting read! Diving with Mike Scott is always an adventure and he’s latest is full of intrigue and excitement. I know you told me “Mike Scott ” would be back, and you didn’t disappoint…he is back, bigger than life and better than ever!!! (I do love all your books though.)

Five Stars: Thanks for the snack, Mr. Douglas! (excerpted)
Author Eric Douglas gives his readers a “tasty snack” in this latest Mike Scott adventure. This novella captured my interest from the first paragraph and held it until the final sentence. I devoured this novella in about the same time I’d take diving a reef in Grand Cayman (with nitrox), enjoying every minute.
I’m ready for the next course, and am looking forward to it being served.
