Buried at Sea: A Novel of Suspense by Paul Garrison (2003-01-01). I bought tihis book because I had read other books by this author and found them to be time well spent. but pretty soon became quite an interesting read. Of course it is science fiction which I don't normally read but this book was pretty good.

Часто встречающиеся слова и выражения. PAUL GARRISON is the pen name of JUSTIN SCOTT. Together they have written more than thirty thrillers, mysteries, and sea stories. Paul Garrison writes modern sea stories (Fire and Ice, Red Sky at Morning, Buried at Sea, Sea Hunter, and The Ripple Effect) and a thriller series based on a Robert Ludlum character (The Janson Command and The Janson Option).

suspense, Paul Garrison's unparalleled thriller brilliantly combinesthe magnificence and mercilessness of the natural water world with the darkest nature of man and the nightmare of modern technology.

NOTHING JIM SAW, nothing around him was familiar. Not the moving gray back of the sea, not the shifting sky, not the ropes that were called lines nor the lines named sheets nor the pulleys dubbed blocks.

NOTHING JIM SAW, nothing around him was familiar. The navigation instruments were magic, the machine that made fresh drinking water a mystery. He had not seen another vessel in two weeks. On the chart that Shannon had found on the Internet when they decided he should take this crazy job, shipping lanes crisscrossed the North and South Atlantic like highways. But the ocean itself was empty as space and almost as barren.

Buried at Sea is the second novel that I read by Paul Garrison. The book explains Will’s reason at the end for choosing Jim but I still think he was very irresponsible. The suspense in this sea adventure goes on and on, from chapter to chapter. While it is just 53 pages longer than Sea Hunter, this novel seemed. Still, he doesn’t come off as a true villain in this book. I was actually thinking how poor Jim was going to get out of the mess he was in, because I just didn’t see a way out. And for some reason, I found the second half of the book more interesting.

Buried at sea. Paul Garrison. Buried at sea. Close

Buried at sea. Close.

Jim displayed his slashed pocket. It happens," Stallone replied distractedly, pondering the problem. I have some gold Krugerrands in my pack. in La Boca who drives a van to Mar del Plata. For gold he might take you. San Clemente is on the way. The party season is ending, but perhaps he has a shipment going tomorrow. What kind of shipment?". Jim said, "We don't want to know. Correct," said Stallone.

The novel's stolid protagonist-Msgr. Colin Michener, longtime secretary to Clement XV, the novel's near-future successor to John Paul II-has reason to doubt the accuracy of the public version of the secret.

Hired on as a deckhand and personal trainer to a wealthy investment banker, Jim Leighton's dream of adventure came true when he set sail for Rio de Janeiro onboard the luxury yacht Hustle. But in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, Jim's enigmatic employer, Will Spark, makes a startling announcement: they are being pursued by someone who wants them dead. With no previous sailing experience -- far from the sanctuary of land in the company of a stranger who is possibly delusional and certainly dangerous -- Jim is suddenly trapped in a harrowing race for survival across the vast waters of the globe. And his options are rapidly being reduced to two: sail or die.

I have liked everything I have read by Paul Garrison(Justin Scott), this is no exception. Great story.
  • FreandlyMan
I am a huge fan of Justin Scott. I love to sail but have to say this book cured any desire I might have had to load up the boat and sail into the sunset. Great story, lots of twists and turns, love his character development and build up of suspense. Read this while at a business conference and have to say the book was better.

This is a fairly fast paced story. A great sailing story if you like sailing and the ocean. There is enough adventure in it to to keep you interested in the story from page to page. The characters are very interesting and thats part of what keeps you reading page after page. I really liked the story and the book. Paul Garrison is a good writer if you like a book that keeps you moving!

I was not previously familiar with this author. Now, I'm glad I am. Buried at Sea is a great book especially for those that love the water and sailing. I will buy more of his novels.

An unusual sea story. Clever plotting, interesting characters, very well written.

Paul Garrison obviously loves and knows the sea. What other book could spend so much time describing how to do everything you need to know on a sailboat. This should be called SAILING FOR DUMMIES, it's so full of self-congratulatory knowledge. Most writers whose knowledge of certain things manage to make this knowledge a key part of the book and interesting. Sorry to say, Garrison comes up short on this one.
That's not the only problem. This plot is so unbelievable, and the pacing is sluggish to say the least. First of all, we have this Jim Leighton character who is very narcissistic about his unbelievably muscular body. How many times does Garrison exploit this by calling him Mr. Muscles etc., etc. He becomes very boorish even as his role as the novel's hero and focal point increases. Add Will Stark, the sometime hero, sometime villain, and you get another portrait of an ego-driven, self-centered fool who has something somebody really wants. Then add the buffoonish villains who haven't got the sense to send out airplanes or helicopters to find out where young Leighton and Stark are, you get a novel so unfocused and leaden, it's hard to get through it. Not to mention Shannon, Leighton's sweetheart who is stupid enough to join him on his mission.
And let's get real. The sailboat sets out of Barbados, supposedly on its way to South America. Then the villains intercept them and now it's off to South Africa. We get to South Africa and then we're expecting them to return to Florida. But no, Stark insists they go on to Rio De Janeiro. Then Stark goes and dies, leaving Jim to fend for himself, who then decides he needs to go to South America, only to have to divert to the Falkland Islands and then into the Arctic area, where he fights not only the villains but icebergs and snowstorms. Then once that battle is finished, it's back to South Africa to retrieve this mysterious computer chip.
I swear, I was sealogged by the time the book ended.
Garrison has delivered before in "Fire and Ice"; but this one is a real clunker and I'd file it in Davy Jones locker without hesitation.
It's hard to describe a book as both full of adventure and boring at the same time, but that is how I found this book to be. The story is about a man with several aliases, owner of a fifty foot sailboat who hires a personal trainer to come on board and keep him "in shape." Little does Jim Leighton, who has little to speak of except nice abs, know that "Will Sparks", the sailboat owner is on the run. From Russian spies to nuclear anythings to satellites in space, someone wants Will Sparks, and wants him badly. Someone with the money, time, and superior intelligence it is going to take to try to keep up with Jim and Will as they sail the ocean all over the world just trying to escape. It seems no port is safe. If you like sailing, you will give this book a five star rating for not only it's adventure content, but the seemingly endless drone of "how to" sail a boat. A very Tom Clancy like story in that the inner and outer and sideways workings of a sailboat compare to his stories of submarines et al. This is where I found it boring, as I know next to nothing about sailboats and am not interested in learning. However, I did find the adventure content excellent, and each time I was sure I'd fall asleep, author Paul Garrison brought it back again. So try it if you like adventure and can handle mechanics, otherwise, leave it for a rainier day.
