Overview

East of the Hague Line by Gordon Holmes

East of the Hague Line is an adventurous, dramatic and quickly paced suspense

novel written about life at sea commercial fishing in the Gulf of Maine and the

far reaching tempestuous North Atlantic.

Maine's rugged Coastline is comprised of more than three

thousand miles of bays, inlets, and peninsulas that create

isolated close-knit fishing communities. The people who live in

these seaside towns have one thing in common, a deep-rooted

bond with the ocean.

East of the Hague Line takes a close personal look at what it

takes to live the life of an offshore fisherman. Writer Gordon

Holmes, a Maine native, captures the rhythms and tensions of

life aboard a commercial fishing boat.

The crew of the fishing vessel Jubilee is comprised of four hardened fishermen,

hopeful for good fishing, whose loved ones wait at home,

fearful for the lives of their men.

Fishermen depend on a good catch to earn their living... but what

happens when manipulation, deceit and betrayal by a trusted

crewmember changes the tide?

Young Tom Anderson fulfills a lifelong dream when he signs on

with Captain Joseph Scanton to go fishing aboard the Jubilee on the North Atlantic.

He gets far more than he bargained for when his captain is

forced to take his boat and crew into a perilous situation in

uncharted waters east of the Hague Line. Scanton's decision

puts their freedom and their lives at stake as they sail into a

trap that will change their destiny... forever.
