A View from the Blue
by Bill Esola
Published author Bill Esola sets to whip everyone’s bookshelf as he announces the release of his absorbing book, Hammer Down. The first installment of A View from the Blue series, this book will surely give readers an edge-of-your-seat reading experience.
Revisiting and retelling a harrowing underwater encounter experienced by the author, Hammer Down is set on an oil rig located in the unspoiled, pristine waters of the south Atlantic, not far off the northern coastline of Angola, Africa. Here, the reader is taken on a remarkable underwater journey. What starts out as a typical day on the rig, soon turns into a potentially life-threatening encounter with a creature rarely observed in today’s oceans. Within the pages of this engrossing read, readers will witness and feel the suspense and trauma of the experience.
Through the use of colorful description and a comfortable balance of technical yet easily comprehensible diving jargon, the author provides insight to the daily routine of oil rig life and transports the reader into a world that few have had the opportunity to experience.
