Nearly a decade ago, Terrie Murphy lost her sister and she still does not have many answers. She turned to the Navy to find the answers herself and now works as an intelligence officer. Her first assignment takes her to Maine, where she is able to start digging deeper into her haunting past. However, instead of finding answers, she only uncovers more secrets and death. She learns of the ship Neptune’s Trident and Captain Tunney who just may be linked to her sister's death. Yet, people have done much to keep this secret and they aren't quite willing to let it go. Will she be able to discover the truth with her life intact?
The Old Corsair by Michael DeStefano was wonderfully well written. The imagery in the book was so vivid that I felt the author actually painted me a picture of what was happening so I could see it with my own eyes. It was beautiful and satisfying. The book started with just as much detail but limited information that made me want to read more and see how the story progressed. In addition, the characters were unique and interesting. I felt for the main character, Terrie, as she wanted to find out what happened to her sister. Instead, she ran head-first into a decades-old secret with so many questions and trap doors that I wasn't sure how she would get out. This author definitely has a new fan and I'm excited to see what is coming next.
