Dexter James

Author Dexter Jamesabout this book: The novel is a kind of Stephen King meets Clive Cussler, as the story does involve the disappearance of some high-profile boats, their passengers and crew, but there are also some haunting moments in the novel.

The novel flips between modern day and World War II and centres around a man's search for his grandfather, a U.S. Seaman, whose demise was categorized as 'missing in action'. But how could that be when during a brief telephone call to his wife, he told her he was about to embark on a boat trip along the rivers connecting Knoxville to St. Louis which raises questions regarding his disappearance:

- what was so critical that he should be taken off important Atlantic runs to travel upriver in the U.S.?
- what possible purpose could he have been fulfilling for the war effort while on the Mississippi?
- why are there no records of his assignment?
- why are there no details of his disappearance?

These are questions Jason has decided to investigate. After all, he is a widower on permanent disability leave and his family have concerns for his well-being, but the quest has given him a sense of purpose and it is about to change his life forever.

The novel is full of surprises, some light-hearted, others dramatic, which hopefully would provide your patrons with some good entertainment. I believe it would be a great asset to your collection.

My novel was inspired by a boat trip I took through the lakes and rivers from Ontario to Florida.
