Not all are born bold enough to dive. However, those who do are handed a life that is changed forever.
Clemency, The Saint Chronicles Part 1 by Charles G. “Thumper” Turner III is about three men who, having encountered unavoidable circumstances in their personal lives, take on a series of salvage dives in conditions that force them to walk the razors edge between life and death. As the mission unfolds, so too does the story which becomes a twisted tale of greed, betrayal, revenge and murder. The only question is: How close are they willing to dance with death in order to bring home the truth and the treasure?
“I’ve tried to bring to my readers the vivid realities of diving in extreme conditions, coupled with characters with real and complex lives. If you dive, you’ll appreciate the backdrop and understand the story. If you don’t then my goal is to teach you something that might compel you to get involved in this incredible sport.”
“Adventure Scuba Company in Chantilly, Virginia has been my home dive shop since I started diving over a decade and a half ago. Every adventure I’ve ever had beneath the sea, which have given me the inspiration for my book Clemency, have all come from within my dive shop. They shared with me a love and a passion for diving that has been a wonderful adventure and has become a lifelong pursuit. Hopefully it will as well for you !”
