Jeff Gardner has woven another exciting tapestry of sailing, surfing and raw fast-paced adventure in a romantic tropical environment. BOCAS TOWN is a novel bristling with thrilling action and social comment. Gardner uses his vast experience of twelve years before the mast, sailing in the Atlantic and Caribbean aboard his sailboat, Changing Tides, to continue his intriguing saga of mystery and mayhem Rick Damiano and Roselle Blakeslee carry on their adventures in this exciting sequel to Extractions. The sailing duo struggle with the realities of their failing relationship while grappling with the actuality of a battle between the Bocas del Toro indigenous natives and the marauding swarm of expatriates, who turn the idyllic Panamanian island into a modern day replay of Cowboys and Indians. CHANGING TIDES is Gardner’s gritty memoir of deception, treachery and mortal peril; EXTRACTIONS begins his Rick Damiano series, depicting the harsh truths of the cruising lifestyle; and BOCAS TOWN, this second novel of the series, continues these exploits of danger and intrigue.
