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.

  • Travis McGee meet Garrison Gage

    By Paladinsoft
    Perhaps the highest praise I can give a book is to compare it to John D. MacDonald’s Travis McGee series. Garrison Gage reminds me so much of Travis. This series is a find. Those looking for high literature may be disappointed, but I found the characters deep and sympathetic, and the plot kept me reading past bedtime. I didn’t see the ending until, well, the ending, which is rare in a mystery. I couldn’t recommend this book more. Now, excuse me while I dash off to buy the second book. ✌🏼

    A great read...loved the main character’s sarcastic/snarky repartee as well as his humanness. Looking forward to read more about Gage’s exploits.
