01 Perfect Plan Excerpt



About the Book- Reed Davenport is a board member of family owned Crude Technologies—the world’s foremost company in oil spill cleanup with three fleets around the globe. He lives to make a difference, and is always trying to find a balance between man and nature. While pursuing the poachers that invaded his sanctuary, he learns a hurricane is ravaging the Atlantic, and the oil tanker Charleston is almost cut in two by the freighter San Paulo when they collided. The tanker carries 120 million gallons of crude and a full crew. Reed’s family—his father John Davenport, sister Sarah, and brother James—is thrust into a race against time to save the crews, and limit the environmental disaster as both vessels struggle to stay afloat. But this disaster quickly turns into tragedy, and a much bigger problem when Reed arrives by helicopter. While hovering over the stricken vessel, he witnesses children tumble down the deck from a chained cargo container. He also sees a courageous man below, beaten and battered, trying to save them as he crosses the canted deck. And as the tragedy unfolds, Reed quickly joins forces in a harrowing

While fighting for both. But that balance can be hard to find when splitting his life between the oil spill giant and his sanctuary, created for threatened and misunderstood animals and life threatening rescue to save as many as possible before the freighter threatens to take all its secrets to the bottom.

This puts him on a quest to find answers when he learns the children were part of a sophisticated human trafficking ring. And the more he learns, the more determined he becomes to stop those responsible. But this evil turns out to be far more reaching than he’d ever thought possible, with tentacles spread throughout the globe. As he moves in on the monster responsible, it also reveals a hidden truth about his own family.

John A. Sobeck, MD


"Just like the first two books in the series, this was another hard to put down insight into the lives and drama of the Davenport family and friends. Brett continues to show his compassion for humanity and I look forward to more!" 

Dayna Garner


“Leaves you wanting more!  Excited for the next book!” 

Linda LaFave-Bouchard





“I hope this series never ends as we get to know more about the Davenport family, and their extended "family" like Tom in this Part 4.  Can't wait for Part 5!”

Dayna Garner


“In the spirit of “Breaking Bad” and “Dexter”, Tom Spears is an antihero for the ages. Diffley does not disappoint in the conclusion to the cliff hanger at the end of “Black Tide”, with a harrowing journey that ends with a number of unexpected twists.”

John A Sobeck, MD


"What a series! Awesome book!"
