Overview

This story is one of love, loss, murder and redemption.

Recreational sailor and successful PR executive Michael Tanner charters a small sailboat for a trip up the Georgia Strait, the Inside Passage from Anacortes, Washington, to Desolation Sound along the coast of British Columbia. Tanner is sailing with his wife Elizabeth and their artist friend, Alice George.

Near Texada Island one foggy morning, they are rammed by a large motor yacht with deadly results. Maritime authorities refuse to search for the mysterious killer yacht, and disbelieve sole survivor Tanner's version of the murders. Faced with a crumbling career, and barely able to cope with the loss of his beloved wife, Tanner sets out to discover the identity of the motor yacht and to learn why his sloop was deliberately rammed.

Through emotional storms and physical danger, including battles with the ocean forces, Tanner rebuilds his life and, in a final exciting and dangerous confrontation on the waters of the Georgia Strait, exacts a measure of justice.

A novel about love, loss, murder and redemption, set against the mountains of British Columbia on the waters of the Inside Passage, between Vancouver Island and the mainland. When Seattle executive Michael Tanner makes a recreational sail into Desolation Sound, he encounters a tragedy that ends with the murder of his wife and her friend, and the loss of the sailboat. Tanner's efforts to resurrect his life and discover those responsible lead him on an odyssey of exciting discovery.

Editorial Reviews

Internet Book Watch
As he made his final preparations on the Queen Anne sloop for their sailing of British Columbia's Inside Passage, successful public relations exec Michael Tanner thought the world is good. Accompanied by his beloved wife Beth and their friend Alice, Michael looks forward to the short trip to Texada Island. An hour later, the fog engulfs the three sailors. However, not too log after that, a big yacht purposely follows and rams the Queen Anne, knocking Michael out. When Michael reawakens, the Coast Guard informs him that his wife and friend have vanished and are assumed dead. No one believes Michael that the accident was deliberate. Unable to cope with the depression and grief, Michael seeks closure. He obsessively goes after the mysterious yacht that destroyed his life seeking vengeance. Inner Passages is an absorbing thriller that works because debut author Carl Brookins makes the various water routes seem beautifully alive. The action is non-stop as Michael faces his own inner demons and guilt (he insisted on sailing) to battle an unknown enemy. The climax is powerful and believable although a subplot involving Mary Whitney, a traveling companion during Michael's odyssey, seems stretched. Mr. Brookins deserves a large audience for a fast-paced novel starring a broken hero.
