Meet the Author

JACK NOLTE is the mystery and suspense pen name of award-winning writer Scott William Carter. Critics raved that The Gray and Guilty Sea, the first book featuring the crippled and curmudgeonly Garrison Gage, was "irresistible" and "a fascinating character study." Under his own name, Carter's first novel, The Last Great Getaway of the Water Balloon Boys, was hailed by Publishers Weekly as a "touching and impressive debut" and won the prestigious Oregon Book Award. Since then, he has published nine novels and over fifty short stories, his fiction spanning a wide variety of genres and styles. His most recent book for younger readers, Wooden Bones, chronicles the untold story of Pinocchio and was singled out for praise by the Junior Library Guild. He lives a stone's throw from the Oregon coast with his wife and two children. To find more information about Jack/Scott's other work, go to scottwilliamcarter.com.

    It's OK

    I expected more. While the short story was OK, most of this download is a teaser for the author's book. It's only about 50 pages.

    Can not judge

    It is difficult to review a book you have not read. When I tried to download this book I received a sample of a different book by Jack Nolte, "The Gray and Guilty Sea". I reported this error to the support team and they sent an email with instructions how to clear the download and retry. They also claimed they did could not duplicate this problem. I followed the instructions and again attempted to download "A Plunder by Pilgrims" and again received the sample for the above book. I again notified the support people this time by replying to their email. They again said they were unable to duplicate my problem and they were able to download "The Gray and Guilty Sea". Huh! Do they even read the text of our complaints? I was then instructed to try the same procedures I had tried before. I deleted the download and gave up. I wonder if anyone will read this review.

    Entertaining

    I thoroughly enjoyed the main character, Gage. He's a crusty sort that is somehow likable. After reading this short story, I am looking forward to reading the novel based on this character. A quick and enjoyable read.

    Can't recommend

    Short story had lots of typos. Download is mostly a sample of a new book.

    Highly recommend

    Jack Nolte's way with the word, great sense of humor, and ability to write a story is refreshing.

    Very disappointing

    This story is only about 40 pages, so it is a very fast read. However it is also very underdeveloped and seemed to be told on a time crunch by skipping over the details. The storyline itself had potential, but was overall disappointing that I did not read the preview (the other 100 pages) of the next book in the series.

    Disappointed in this book

    Glad it was on the free list as I was disappointed in it and would have felt I had wasted my money and time on this one.

    Not bad

    This was a really short story to introduce the main character for the longer novel. It was a decent read, but really didn't make me want to read more about Garrison.

    Not a bad read..

    Good introductory story for Gage the main character. Shadowy background not fully explained and a possible love interest with the newspaper owner/reporter. I have already downloaded the full novel.

    Okay, so you got me

    Good idea, putting the novel sample at the end of the short story like that. You hooked me! Like the short story, but the novel seems even better.

    Will not ecommend.

    Spends way too much time and energy on rambling descriptives that add little to the story. The sample doesn't peak my interest enough to find out about the characters or the investigation.

    A great read!

    I really liked the character and want to know more about him. I don't know if this is the start of a series, but I'd love to know more of the back story. At the end is a preview of another book with the same character. I'll definitely be reading it.

    good read

    Short. Most of the page count is the preview of the next book. I will definitely be getting more books in this series.

    Excellent short story

    Compelling character in Garrison Gage, taut plot with a satisfying amount of drama and pathos. Wish had been longer with more plot and character development.

    NOT a full book, just the 6 chapters

    The writing was smoothly written. Kudos to Jack Nolte. Too bad that it is not the actual book, just a lure with it being the first chapters only.
