A Murder at Sea. William P. Mack. Ensign Carlson is just finding his sea legs on the USS Lassiter when he finds himself embroiled in a murder. Carlson goes from chasing women to finding out who killed his roommate. The closer he gets, the riskier life becomes as the perpetrators try their best to silence him.
The plot grows more complex as Carlson's shipmates, naval intelligence, and the FBI get caught up in the investigation.
William P. Mack brings his skills as a storyteller, coupled with his masterful detailed accounts of life at sea in a destroyer, to bear in this multi-faceted tale of death, deception and international crime. 2001, cloth, 298 pp.
