While this is a novel and some of the things the protagonist
do stray across the line of what a person could probably
handle in reality...the main points of the novel are all
well researched. You can tell G.T. Harper had a coastie
or two help him when he was writing, because almost all
the interactions are spot on and realistic. This is a solid
novel and I hope to see more from this author. -- K.H.
Great storyline with interesting characters. Felt like
you were right there. I can even imagine the freezing water
in the Bering sea. Learned a lot about a world I knew nothing
about...always a plus. -- K.S.
G.T. Harper has written a cliff-hanging thriller. The story
unfolds at a brake neck pace moving from one death defying
experience to another. Each one unfolding the story through
its cast of characters. Special Coast Guard agent Max Sinclair
has his work cut out for him to try and discover who is
at the bottom of all the disasters that happen in rapid
succession on board his uncle's King crab fishing boat.
Russian drug dealers have infiltrated the crew and all hell
brakes loose as they battle the weather,the conditions and
each other. This is a guaranteed page turner. You'll love
it if you like action, excitement, and a bit of romance
thrown in. -- N.C.
I love the characters, the story, and the action.
Well written, informative, and a definite page turner. It feels
as if the author really knows what it's like to be on a fishing
boat in Alaska and is able to put you right there with the characters.
I highly recommend this book and I hope it's the beginning of a
series. -- G.C.
I read a lot of thrillers. My favorites were Clive Cussler and
Tom Clancy. But this guy blew my socks off. And I never even heard
of him. I think it's his first novel. I read the first chapter for
free and had to buy it. I started reading Thursday night and called
in sick to work on Friday. I had to finish it! It keeps you turning
the pages chapter after chapter. I love that show "Deadliest
Catch," and this made me feel like I was right up there on
a fishing boat in the Bering Sea. But it's more than that, way more
than just a sea adventure or fishing story. I'm not going to give
anything away. There are lots of twists and turns, the Coast Guard
has a huge and very cool role in the book, part of it even takes
place on a desserted Aleutian Island. It was so cool. The research
the author must have done to make this so authentic blows me away.
Seriously, just read the first chapter. If you like that, you'll
love the rest of it. I promise. It's one of the most intense, exciting,
and well-written books I've read in years. Clancy, Cussler, Patterson,
look out, there's a new guy on the block. -- T.R.
I've been out of pocket for a few days. Holy crap! I knew you could
write, of course, but I never expected a chapter like that! It's
just the kind of book I never buy because it's not my kind of thing.
But just like Stephen Koontz's books, a couple of which I've devoured,
this grabs me and won't let go. I don't care about intrigue on the
Bering Sea, but I do care about Max. And this miserable pervert
they've taken on. You've nailed the introduction, and I bought a
copy. -- S.J.
I've read this book, and it's a dandy! Imagine working hundreds
of miles from land at the top of the globe.... Coast Guard pilot,
trawler captain, criminal: They're all there. A satisfying thriller
with unforgettable atmosphere. -- E.S.
