“Action, intrigue, and high stakes drama—just what you want from a thriller. Toss in a little lust and greed, and it’s the perfect mix for a classic, on-the-run adventure.”
- Steve Berry, New York Times and #1 Internationally Bestselling Author
“Landon Beach is the real deal. And The Sail is a top-notch thriller with suspense to burn!”
- Ted Bell, Author, NY Times Bestselling Alex Hawke Series
As a picturesque and perfect summer arrives in Michigan, a father and son prepare to sail around Lake Superior, one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world. It is a trip three years in the making and filled with planned stops for wreck diving, camping, and hiking. The water is deep, the wind is just right, and the sunsets are sublime.
However, there is also a reason that the majority of the Superior coastline is referred to as remote. When you are far away from home and help, you only have yourself to count on when danger approaches. And for Robin and Tristian Norris, what they find will be a nightmare.
It isn’t a question of will they survive, but who will survive?
Grab a life jacket and find something or someone to hold on to, it’s time to go sailing.
"Landon Beach's debut novel The Wreck is a modern-day Treasure Island that keeps the reader turning pages."
– Steve Alten, NY Times & international best-selling author of The MEG and The Loch
“For a fun, exciting twist on the greatest mystery in Great Lakes maritime history, The Wreck by Landon Beach is an excellent summer read! Beach has crafted a story full of colorful characters; the bad guys are really bad and the good guys are really great. The Michigan summer cottage experience is perfectly captured, and then enhanced by a gripping adventure aboard boats, on shore, and best of all, underwater. Because the tension builds unbearably, the reader will not be able to turn away from the book and should take care when reading on the beach because of the danger of forgetting to re-apply sunscreen! We’re looking forward to more terrific Landon Beach Great Lakes novels!”
– Cris Kohl and Joan Forsberg, well-known maritime historians, founders of Seawolf Communications, Inc., and authors of numerous diving and shipwreck books including The Wreck of the Griffon: The Greatest Mystery of the Great Lakes
About The Wreck
Nate and Brooke Martin arrive at their summer cottage ready to relax and rekindle their relationship. The beach is warm, the water is cool, and the sea breeze is blissful—just another perfect summer in Hampstead, Michigan filled with wine, bonfires, and beach reading.
Then, on a morning stroll along the beach, Nate finds something half-buried in the sand that turns their quiet vacation into a dangerous unraveling of the past. And the key to solving the mystery may lie within Abner Hutch, a retired Coast Guard Officer and Great Lakes master of the deep—a flawed man with a complicated past and a core wound that will not heal.
As Nate and Hutch search for answers on a remote peninsula, they begin to realize what the mega-rich residents up the coast already know: you can only keep a secret for so long.
And when some secrets get out…there is no turning back.
