The Sea on Fire

Howard Cunnell

When they were young, Kim and his best friend, Garland Rain, travelled the globe. They worked as dive guides, living free and easy by the sea. Garland is still out there, but Kim’s life is different now. He’s married and a father of three children.


Still longing for the freedom of the water, Kim agrees to help Garland run a one-time trip to the spectacular reefs of the southern Red Sea. What neither man expects is just how badly wrong this trip will go. Drugs and violence collide, and not everyone returns safely.


Back on dry land, Kim finds that the decisions you make in the moment can come back to haunt you, even follow you home.
