The Gray and Guilty Sea "Carter's writing is on target." - Publishers Weekly

A curmudgeon. An iconoclast. A loner. That's how people describe Garrison Gage, and that's when they're being charitable.

After his wife's brutal murder in New York, and Gage himself is beaten nearly to death, the crippled private investigator retreats three thousand miles to the quaint coastal town of Barnacle Bluffs, Oregon. He spends the next five years in a convalescent stupor, content to bide his time filling out crossword puzzles and trying to forget that his wife's death is his fault. But all that changes when he discovers the body of a young woman washed up on the beach, and his conscience draws him back into his old occupation - forcing him to confront the demons of his own guilt before he can hope to solve the girl's murder.

Publisher's Note:  A newly revised edition of The Gray and Guilty Sea was published in June 2014, correcting minor typos and formatting errors.

    Loved it, well written and didn't give itself away until the end
  • Gripping tale

    By Jackyann53
    The story grips the reader from the start, Gage is a typical hackneyed, bitter ex-private eye with a tragedy in his past. Retired into a small seaside town with only crosswords, a dying elderly lady and her granddaughter in his life. Until he finds the body of a girl washed up on the beach. Unable to put it behind him, he begins investigating and uncovers much more than he anticipated. I could hardly put this down, it's a must for anyone who's fave genre is murder mystery - or indeed anyone who enjoys a gripping tale.
  • A good read

    By Jilly 26
    Quite a good murder story set on the Oregon coast - a place I've always wanted to visit. However, reading this story where it rained practically the whole time I'm now not so sure!
  • The cane in the head made the difference

    By gumbooted
    Detective story. Hard person with a soft inner. Perhaps that bit has been said before. The difference is that the storyteller understands the mind and the soft inner is not necessarily soft. He carries a cane but as is said in one throwaway line deep in the book it's the cane in the mind that makes the difference. It's a book that needs reading.
