The Gray and Guilty Sea Book Summary

"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.

    There are inconsistencies like the following quote that could have been corrected by either the author or an editor... Gray & Guilty Sea passage “A bit more effort and then he was in the woods, where the dark canopy shielded him from most of the rain and the wind. Water ran down his face in rivulets. His fedora was a soaked sponge, letting the rain straight through” Excerpt From: Scott William Carter. “The Gray and Guilty Sea.” Flying Raven Otherwise, not a bad read.

    So well written and suspenseful! A perfect combination. Didn't know "who done it" till the very end. That's a good read!
