20,000 Kilos Under the Sea: A Modern Retelling of the Jules Verne Classic Adventure

Richard Wickliffe

2023 FAPA Award Winner

When a US expedition is attacked, three survivors -a professor, her student and a soldier- are saved by a mysterious vessel, the Naumtsev. The enigmatic Captain Nikto elects to keep the captives aboard, requiring each of their skills for his daring pursuits. But as they navigate the globe, evidence of the rogue submarine alerts the world's navies, forcing the captives to work together to avoid annihilation.

A fast-paced adventure-thriller described as "The classic Disney adventure meets The Hunt for Red October." A global voyage inspired by real narco-subs, actual sea creatures and new scientific conjecture.
