In Peter Colt’s gritty, gripping new series set along the New England coast, a Boston-born Vietnam veteran and P.I. is hired to find a missing father—but may find far more than he bargained for . . . Boston, 1982. P.I. Andy Roark has spent the past decade trying to fit back into the world. In Vietnam, there was order and purpose. Everything—no matter how brutal—happened for a reason. Now, after brief stints in college and with the police force, it’s enough for him to take on the occasional divorce or insurance fraud case. Roark’s childhood friend, Danny Sullivan, dragged himself out of the Southie gutter to become a respected and powerful lawyer. Now he wants Roark to help one of his clients find her missing father. The case takes Roark to the beaches of Nantucket, where Roark’s finely-honed senses alert him to danger just below the island’s picturesque surface—where the biggest case of Roark’s career may just shatter what little peace of mind he has left . . .

Off Season

“You're a damned off islander yourself,” said Nash. “What do you know about it?” It was true that I was an off islander. To be an islander, you had to be born there. Some said that your parents had to have been born there, too.

There’s nothing like Martha’s Vineyard on crisp autumn days, after the season has ended. The “off-islanders” are finally gone and ex-Boston cop J.W. Jackson is free to relax. But the natives are getting seriously restless this fall, with animal rights activists squaring off against deer slayers and environmentalists butting heads with land developers. Things have reached a boiling point, and it’s not long before verbal arrows become real ones. When a most unlikely victim is caught in lethal crossfire, Jackson can’t just sit idly by.

ISLAND STRIPERS is a result of the author’s 45 years of fishing Block Island’s waters and his offered contentions supported by science. This effort is filled with insights into its history & unique geology, its tides & currents, early native fishing, updates in striper biology & evolution, detailed day & night, surf & boat angling, striper diseases, major action spots and techniques, popular baits, recent record-breaking fish, fly & surf fishing interviews, forage species, various tagging agencies, results of his striper tagging, vessels used, and much, much more..... Early in 2012 he was selected for induction into the IGFA’s World Fishing Hall of Fame, a result of his career tagging nearly 60,000 documented game fish for science, thanks to help from clients & friends. Of these 43,000 were striped bass for the American Littoral Society (ALS), the remainder for the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), which included bluefin tuna, various billfish and shark species. Back in 2011 SPORTFISHING magazine commenced their annual Making A Difference (MAD) Campaign, to identify fifty individuals nationwide who made significant contributions to sport fishing. Capt. Al Anderson was announced as one of their five winners. He is a well known New England charter skipper, author, lecturer and conservationist, long recognized for his ethic of marking game fish for science. (
