Readers enter a world of wisecracking sailors and stormy seas in this new novel released by Dog Ear Publishing.
What do a ship loaded with jet fuel, a woman connected to a mob boss, a cast of characters and a writer’s obsession with the sea and lovely ladies have in common? They all play a role in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing featuring an actual event in the Arabian Sea, set during Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. The story features exotic ports of call, shipmates that run the gamut from sweethearts to slobs and an unforgettable adventure.
In “Unchartered Waters” the story’s middle-aged narrator, Theodore, who works for the Merchant Marines after serving in the Navy, receives an assignment to join a two-year-old ship in Japan. Before the ship even leaves dock, he’s met his cross-dressing, cleaning-obsessed watch partner, as well as a gorgeous woman. Unfortunately, all of that woman’s former boyfriends turn up dead, thanks to a mobster, and she’s become a cook on the ship to hide. The two hatch a plot to get her off the ship.
Theodore’s companions on board the refueling ship share their own stories, keeping them entertained as they float around the globe. Before their excitement at sea ends, an accident with the ship puts everybody in danger, and Theodore hears from an old friend. Maritime fans and those who like taking a risk will enjoy entering unchartered waters with their amiable host.
