Description

After 30 rough years of adventure on the seas, Jake Thomas makes landfall in a new and quiet life in Oregon - only to discover that the past dies hard. The secrets he's kept, even from himself, won't stay buried. Forty years earlier, a beautiful, young woman was murdered during Jake's first voyage as a deck cadet on the American freighter, the SS James Wait. Her children want answers only Jake can give. What really happened that terrible night? Did the wrong man go to jail? In this riveting story-within-a-story, Jake's peaceful routine in Portland, Oregon, stands in stark contrast to his days as a merchant seaman in Subic Bay, when he set off on a journey to discover his dark side. A journey that hasn't yet ended. Written in a style that compares to Joseph Conrad, Joseph Jablonski drew upon his own years of sea experience to craft a book that is as much a careful observation of human nature and a powerful condemnation of war as it is a suspenseful sea story.

Author Biography

Though far from the open sea, Nebraska produced a man whose love of adventure led him from the Central Plains to become midshipman up to commander of the largest container ship in the American merchant marine fleet. Joseph Jablonski was born in 1948 and spent 30 of his 66 years circumnavigating the world on an odyssey that would bring him to test the limits of his courage and stamina. At age 50, Jablonski relinquished his role as captain for that of writer. Landfall, and Three Star Fix that precedes it, reveal the heart of a man engaged with the world, undaunted by its challenges, and at peace with his own nature.
