Some are fated to walk a cruel path
Scuba diver, fisherman, boating enthusiast—twenty-three years in the Royal Australian Navy never dulled Wilder Nash’s love of the sea. Through two deployments to the Persian Gulf and a stint with the Counter-Terrorism Task Force, he thought he’d witnessed the best and worst of human nature. A month after his beloved wife, Libby, succumbed to breast cancer, Wilder left the navy for good. Lost in grief, he sought solace in one of the most remote coastlines of Western Australia. Forever tied to the ocean, he had hoped to find himself in the sea. Instead, he met a man who had lived his life beyond normal standards of right and wrong, a man who had lost much more than Wilder had ever possessed—a man whose story he felt compelled to tell.
