Publisher's Summary

Whirlaway is literary fiction, a high-seas romp drawn on real time in a delusional era. What happens when two young entrepreneurs inherit nothing and decide to rob a bank the modern way, with lies on paper to finance a sailing yacht? 

On signatures and handshakes, the future brightens with enough drugs to suspend the NFL, enough liquor to make sagebrush soggy, and women with no bones. The only thing missing is reality, but not for long. Here is the action and drama of tropical delusion. Martin and Jack reach the nitty gritty, learning the rule of the sea and the real low down on a tropical dreamscape. 

As a Maui County Library Hot Pick and a Beach Book of the Month Club Main Selection, Whirlaway resounds among charter crews. 

“Whirlaway is a Maui classic!” (The South Maui Times

“A relent, fascinating parable of a free-booting era.” (Michael Gregory, author, Song of the Beast

“A daring look behind the scenes of tourism in Hawaii. Passages depicting open-sea crossings are vivid, and the cameos of mainland tourists are dead on.” (Publisher’s Weekly)
