Tortugas Rising

(1 customer review)


In the middle of the Gulf of Mexico, on a chain of manmade islands, Steve Bennett finds himself thrust into a world he doesn’t understand.

An unexpected inheritance places him among the world’s wealthiest people. His best friend, Paul, is more than happy to stand by him, as Steve works through his newfound affluence, right until the pair stumbles upon a secret that could change the world forever.

Their discovery puts the two friends in the sights of conspirators and killers, who will stop at nothing to see their plans fulfilled. Steve and Paul must evade the killers, escape the islands and save the world. Of course, they have no training, no allies, and no idea what they’re doing. They’re not really in the best shape. And, Paul’s really not the brightest guy.

The action unfolds across the chain of luxury islands with boat chases, car chases, blazing guns, beautiful women, charging rhinos, castles (okay, it’s just one castle), daring escapes, dirty limericks, deadly villains, and more.

    I’m a fan of Benjamin Wallace’s work and absolutely loved Tortugas Rising. It is a wild fast paced nonstop adventure with more than a touch of humor. The story starts with Steve Bennett, a man who is suddenly rich from an inheritance he never expected, and his best friend heading off to see a man-made island he is now the own of. What is supposed to be a relaxing holiday turns out to be anything but. No spoilers, but I will say starting out I would never have guessed where the story was going to lead me. This story would make an excellent movie. And I have to give Benjamin major props, this is the first book I’ve read read/listened to that dropped a Remo Williams reference!!

    The book is narrated by the talented Phil Thron and he does a fantastic job. This is the 3rd or 4th time I’ve listened to his work and he never disappoints
