They are forced to make confessions to Father Paul, who is also dealing with the ghosts of his own past. The Father believes there is a link between their lives and the incidents on the ferry. He realises the ferry poses a big risk to the lives of the townsfolk. Meanwhile, investigative journalist Quinn is quick to sniff something fishy. On the trail of an interesting story, he hounds the Father and Mayor Nick.
Father Paul, Nick Carter, ferry technician Rob Jennings, and the Red Indian chief Achooka, who keeps a close watch over the town, team up to save Rochester from a possible disaster.
Will the ferry be made a pawn in the battle between the good and the evil?
James Brown hopes to take the literary world by storm with his unique style. The author strongly feels that any work of fiction should focus more on the storyline and less on elaborate descriptions. He believes that descriptions must be short, precise, and merely set the context in relation to the story.
Brown’s story is fast paced. Many obvious inferences are not explained and left to the readers’ imagination. It provides an edge-of-the-seat reading experience.
