Fans of mystery and suspense as well as lovers of adventure will have a treat reading Landon Beach’s debut novel, ‘The Wreck’. Now available in both e-book and paperback from Amazon, ‘The Wreck’ is the story of Nate and Brooke Martin, whose lives change forever when they arrive at their family’s summer vacation home.
Nate Martin finds something unfathomable on the beach—something impossible—that creates a frenzied search for answers amongst people who hold life less dear than their more desirous pursuits.
On the famous beaches of Hampstead, Michigan, what was once a small community of summer cottage holders has turned into a beachfront full of gaudy mansions owned by the mega-rich. Among the few remaining cottage folk are Nate and Brooke Martin, two teachers who have settled in for the summer to relax and rekindle their relationship. And on a remote peninsula resides Abner Hutch, retired Coast Guard Officer and Great Lakes master of the deep—a man with a mysterious past and a core wound that will not heal.
Everything changes on the sunny day in June when Nate takes a walk on the beach.
“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. Because the tension builds unbearably, the reader will not be able to turn away from the book,” say Cris Kohl and Joan Forsberg, well-known maritime historians, founders of Seawolf Communications, Inc., and authors of numerous diving and shipwreck books.
Landon Beach was born and raised in Michigan, and his heart will forever belong to the Great Lake State. Currently, he is an educator and formerly served as a Naval Officer. He has been writing for years but honed his craft when he earned his MA in Creative Writing and English. He travels between Michigan and Florida but is most at home relaxing on any beach with his wife and two young children.
Judging by the popular reception of his debut work, Landon Beach is busy working on ‘The Sail’, yet another gripping story of a family’s idyllic summer trip that does not go as planned.
‘The Wreck’ can be purchased from Amazon in e-book and paperback formats.
