From Amazon:

Gavin Cutter, an artist living in an isolated village on the New England coast, witnesses the crash of a sailing ship onto a reef. The first aboard the wreck, he rescues a dog, the only living creature on the vessel. Ron Myers, wealthy owner of a growing computer firm, and the ship’s crew have disappeared without a trace.
When insurance investigator TJ Flood questions Cutter and others, he learns a sheriff’s deputy denies knowledge of a woman who also witnessed the incident.
Myers is alleged to have developed a radical new microprocessor system. Some assert the system was lost with its creator, others believe it exists and have devious plans to profit from the invention. Flood is attracted to Cutter’s daughter, Dee. Together they investigate the ship incident and strange coincidences surrounding it. The result is threats, danger—and several murders.

My Thoughts:

The opening says "It was a dark and stormy night"....Now I ask you what mystery novel enthusiast could resist that line? A ship crashes onto the rocks and all is lost ...except for the dog. This is the stunning opening for this page turner by John (J.R.) Lindermuth. Once Gavin Cutter gains access to the boat he finds no one - that is no person but there is a dog, a limping dog.
A woman was seen walking a dog on the each, how come this isn't in the police report? T J Flood...an insurance investigator arrives and can't accept the facts as presented. That keeps him pursuing a more feasible answer to what happened and, of course, Carver's daughter, Delia, is an added attraction. I read this novel in one day... the story had me gripped. The characters are interesting and believable and the the plot is riveting. The fact that there was a cute dog went a long way on selling the book also. ( )

A sailing ship washes up on shore with no one aboard except a German shepherd mix dog with a limp, who artist, Gavin Cutter, rescues and names Ketch. Unwittingly, Cutter, his daughter Dee, and insurance investigator T. J. Flood, who is looking into the circumstances of the wreck and the missing crewmen, stumble onto a sinister plot. As T.J. investigates, he learns the captain of the ship was a genius in microprocessors and was on the brink of an invention that would change computer science forever. Was it a ship wreck, or was it murder?

This book was a fun, fast read and an old-fashioned, bordering on cozy, mystery. The characters were well rounded and interesting. The overall mystery was well thought out. I found some parts of it to be somewhat predictable, but I still enjoyed watching the characters discover the truth.
