Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0991344383, Paperback)
After 30 rough years of adventure on the seas, Jake Thomas makes landfall in a new and quiet life in Oregon – only to discover that the past dies hard. The secrets he’s kept, even from himself, won’t stay buried.
Forty years earlier, a beautiful, young woman was murdered during Jake’s first voyage as a deck cadet on the American freighter, the SS James Wait. Her children want answers only Jake can give. What really happened that terrible night? Did the wrong man go to jail?
In this riveting story-within-a-story, Jake’s peaceful routine in Portland, Oregon, stands in stark contrast to his days as a merchant seaman in Subic Bay, when he set off on a journey to discover his dark side. A journey that hasn’t yet ended.
Written in a style that compares to Joseph Conrad, Joseph Jablonski drew upon his own years of sea experience to craft a book that is as much a careful observation of human nature and a powerful condemnation of war as it is a suspenseful sea story.
