Overview

There’s an old saying that goes: The difference between a fairy tale and a fisherman’s tale is this… a fairy tale begins, “Once Upon A Time,” and a fisherman’s tale begins, “This Ain’t No Bullshit.”
Supernatural terror stalks the crew of the purse seiner the F/V “The Case In Point” during the March 2010 Sitka Herring Sac Roe Fishery in Southeast Alaska. As the herring war intensifies, each boat is an island, and being alone can cost you everything. As the web spins from the depths, the past is not so distant; the lines between history and myth begin to blur. The forgotten horror surrounding the 1835 loss of the Nantucket whaler “The Covenant” threatens to overwhelm the present. One among the seven men aboard “The Case In Point” is unwittingly marked by a woman beautiful and cursed, who not only desperately needs his help, but needs, desperately, to tear out his heart and consume his crew.

Meet the Author

Amy K. Marshall has been an archaeologist, curator, archivist, conservator, diver, sled dog race project manager and logistics chief, line chef, waitress, forklift operator, newspaper delivery girl, musical theater director, actress, small business owner, musician, and shovel bum (not necessarily in that order, and not necessarily exclusively at one time or another). She holds a B.A. in Medieval Archaeology (this explains the odd jobs) and an M.A. in Maritime History & Nautical Archaeology (this explains the whole boat fascination thing). She is currently the Library Director for the small fishing town of Craig, Alaska on Prince of Wales Island, and would like to go on record that she was NOT her small fishing town's librarian at the time of writing this particular story. She resides in Craig with her husband, two teenagers (this goes far in explaining the whole horror writer thing), dark-fairy-hunting cat, and psychotic Border collie; all of whom she loves beyond all measure.

    An intricate tale with an interesting twist

    Marshall mixes the gritty life of commercial fishermen with the dark whimsy of mythology and legend. The book hooks you from the start and keeps you turning pages to find out what happens next. My only criticism would be the constant use of technical nautical references. The non-boat savvy reader (like myself) finds themselves having to stop to look up the terms in order to follow what is happening in the story. All in all, a good read and I will be recommending it to my circle of readers.
