Quicksilver was my first book. I added to it over time, so make sure you get the latest download. FATAL SHORE is the continuation of the story. It now includes QUICKSILVER, LINER, THE FOOL, REACH THE BEACH, and SAVED BY ZERO.
Please disregard the one (first) poor review. It is obviously by someone who does not understand the concept of 'Hard Boiled' Too much booze and fighting, Pahleeeease!!! I don't know where he grew up, but this is the world I grew up in. And Yes, Jack is an A-hole. They exist too. LOL
I am a maritime Captain, Live in NYC and have 2 grown sons, Joseph and Daniel, thus Jack (Joe,) Danning.

I quit QUICKSILVER half way through because I never got into it. The lead character is an old hippy type who is a welder and an ass to be around but he has a lot of close friends. He's a rough and tumble kind of guy who fights and drinks too much and rides his bike and ignores the rest of the world. The writing is good and the editing is passable. I'm not going to rate it because I don't like the characters or the premise, but others might.
