Summary

Summary

In this riveting third book in the J.D. Stanton Mysteries series, the retired Navy captain sets sail with two sailors and a crew of five dysfunctional teenagers. After a storm, a dark object emerges through the mist: It's a military ship from the British Navy--the HMS "Archer"--a relic from World War I that went missing in 1913, never to be found.

Publisher's Weekly Review

This well-paced Christian mystery features strong writing, an original plot and ambitious use of time travel and theoretical physics. Captain J.D. Stanton (featured in two previous Gansky thrillers) brings five troubled teenagers on a weeklong sailing expedition to learn values and, he hopes, a bit about Christian faith. A terrible squall disrupts their trip and leaves them "dead in the water" (without electricity or communications); then a 1907 battleship, uninhabited and seemingly untouched by time, appears out of the fog. One of the teens must overcome his own pain and bitterness to save the ghost ship from being destroyed and save his companions as well. Gansky is a skilled writer, and readers who are interested in naval history will enjoy this unusual maritime suspense novel. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
