Ghost Ship: A Short Story Exclusive
Released On: Oct 24, 2017

The discovery of a burned body sprawled on a remote Australian beach shatters the vacation plans of Commander Gray Pierce. To thwart an ingenious enemy, he and Seichan are pulled into a centuries-old mystery surrounding a lost convict ship, the Trident. The vessel—with a history of mutiny and stolen treasure—vanished into the mists of time, but nothing stays lost forever. A freak storm reveals clues scattered across the Great Barrier Reef, but to follow those clues leads to bloodshed and savagery, for where this ghost ship is hidden is as shocking as the mystery behind its disappearance. It will take all of Gray’s ingenuity and Seichan’s deadly skills to not only survive—but to stop an enemy from destroying everything in his path.

Critical Acclaim

  • "Great short story. Love the characters and the story line. Action packed from start to finish. Can't go wrong with this one"

    Henry S (Reader Review)
  • "As usual, the story gets your interest immediately by getting to action and developing a plot that carries you throughout the story. An easy and enjoyable read."

    Harold Burks (Reader Review)
  • "I thought this was a great prequel to whet my appetite before Demon Crown comes out. I love all of James Rollins' books and this was no exception!!!"

    SA (Reader Review)
  • "When I saw that this was a short story of only 57 pages, I was concerned that it wasn't going to be long enough to be good, that it would likely be rushed and likely leave me disappointed. Having read all of the Sigma novels I should have known better. James never disappoints and keeps you wanting to continue reading. Plus the prologue for the next book has me itching for it's release."

    C. Dickerson (Reader Review)
  • "this is a good short story of a treasure ship, death, sharks and sea crocodile! interesting combination for a good short story! really enjoyed it!!"

    Wendy Hill (Reader Review)
  • "Amazing how much is packed into this novella. Looking forward to Demon Crown!"

    VeronicaK (Reader Review)
  • "A super quick read with the outcome never in doubt, this "short" story really serves more as a means with which to deliver a teaser for the upcoming full-length novel Demon Crown."
