The Gray and Guilty Sea Scott William Carter & Jack Nolte read online review & book description:

"Carter's writing is on target." - Publishers Weekly

A curmudgeon. An iconoclast. A loner. That's how people describe Garrison Gage, and that's when they're being charitable.

After his wife's brutal murder in New York, and Gage himself is beaten nearly to death, the crippled private investigator retreats three thousand miles to the quaint coastal town of Barnacle Bluffs, Oregon. He spends the next five years in a convalescent stupor, content to bide his time filling out crossword puzzles and trying to forget that his wife's death is his fault. But all that changes when he discovers the body of a young woman washed up on the beach, and his conscience draws him back into his old occupation - forcing him to confront the demons of his own guilt before he can hope to solve the girl's murder.

Publisher's Note:  A newly revised edition of The Gray and Guilty Sea was published in June 2014, correcting minor typos and formatting errors.

    Extremely interesting, no hint of the bad guy until the end. There are multiple plots within the main story. Author does a great job of describing Oregon coast weather. Gage has a bad knee for which he needs a cane. Having a bad knee for many years myself, I could feel his pain and frustration. He tries to be a tough skinned man but shows a compassionate side to friends.

    A very enjoyable mystery novel. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good mystery. A few unexpected twists and turns.
  • A modern American classic

    By wonttakeless
    The first thought that comes to mind reading this book is that it has the making of the classics of yore, the likes of Tolstoy and Hawthorne, written in modern American English language. It does not disappoint .

  • Disappointed!

    By Bun Brrabbid Lop
    Too much profanity--of the Holy Trinity! Really liked what I read of the first chapters. Books can use mild or varying degrees of cuss words without going to the far extreme. As a Christian, I could not continue to read this author, this book. If you were ever to change your expletives, I would be happy to give your books a second chance. 🐰
