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.

    I am looking forward to reading the next 2 books in the Garrison Gage Series.It was hard to put this one down and take time away from reading straight through but not being a speed reader you do have to take a break.

    The characters in the book are developed well. Main character is believable with flaws. I prefer that over other main characters that are super human.
  • Great read! Well written book.

    I was browsing the free titles and saw this book with numerous reviews. I thought I would give it a try... A remarkable story and identifiable characters made for a book I couldn't put down. Why would a book this damn good be free? Well, I answered my own question while writing this for all of you to see. I will read more from this author and MUST read the other books in the Gage Garrison series. Do yourself a favour, download and read it!

    From Brian Didsbury
    Expressively written with a continuous flow that develops the characters without excess this book clearly takes you into the action, the adventure never ceases and neither does the plot. From this book I have found an author who knows his craft, knows how to keep his gentle reader in suspense and makes a person want to read more of his talented stories. This author is going to be one of the greats and it will be a pleasure to have more of his worthy books in my library.
