Just read The Ripple Effect by Paul Garrison. LOVED IT!!
I like the books by SeaKnots member Christine Kling.
Thanks for the kind comment Richard. I appreciate it.

My all time favorite sailing writer is Sam Llewellyn. Most of his sailing thrillers are out of print now in the US, but you can still find them used or in your library. The titles are:

Dead Reckoning
Blood Orange
Death Roll
Deadeye
Blood Knot
Riptide
Clawhammer
Maelstrom

Nobody writes better sailing scenes than this guy. I really wish he hadn't given up on writing them. His website is http://www.samllewellyn.com/thrillers.html

And Franc, I agree with you about Ripple Effect. After I read it I got to meet "Paul Garrison" in New York. He is also the same writer who wrote the book Ship Killer under the name Justin Scott. Fun book. Under the Garrison name he has written:

Fire And Ice (1998)
Red Sky At Morning (2000)
Buried At Sea (2002)
Sea Hunter (2003)
The Ripple Effect (2004).

I read Red Sky At Morning a couple of months ago because it also deals with submarines and my Work In Progress has a sub in it. I love his stuff.

Fair winds,
Christine
