The Gray and Guilty Sea: A Garrison Gage Mystery | [Jack Nolte, Scott William Carter]

The Gray and Guilty Sea: A Garrison Gage Mystery

A curmudgeon. 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 3,000 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....

Publisher's Summary

A battered detective.

A dead girl on the beach.

A small town on edge.

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 3,000 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.

    Story
    "Very enjoyable"

    The narrator fit the story well and did a good job of portraying the other characters. The ending was a bit predictable, but I still enjoyed the story.
    It was well written so it was easy to listen to, and I had a hard time putting it down.

    I am an eBay seller who listens to approx. a book a day while taking & editing photos of my items. I love a good suspenseful mystery!

    "Just A Really Good Book!"

    I enjoyed every minute of this book. Great story, well written and executed perfectly! I found myself listening while I worked and happy because time flew by quickly! I will be listening to the other books in this series and highly suggest them to anyone looking for a book that isn't too complicated but is overall enjoyable!

    Story
    "Not at all what I expected."

    When I got this book my expectations were not very high however I was wrong. At soon as I started listening I was totally drawn into the story and any spare time I had the headphones went on and I was into the story again. I don't tell what the story is about because I think that gives people a predetermined idea about the story but I will say read it.
