Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jack Vermillion is seeing red. So is Earl V. Pike. So is a smart, beautiful NYC detective named Casey Spandau. For Jack, it began when Earl asked for a little favor — one former soldier to another. With Jack's son in serious trouble with the law and his shipping company, Black Water Transit, about to hit the big time, Jack saw a chance to be a good father, a good citizen, and a good CEO — by ratting out Earl V. Pike to the feds. It was a monumental mistake.

Now Pike is mad. Bodies are piling up. And all the backstabbers are coming out of the woodwork in Jack's rattled world. Jack's only hope: detective Casey Spandau, who began her week hunting for a sex criminal and ended up with Earl V. Pike — a man using guile, skill, and one astounding long-range weapon to kill everyone who gets in his way. For Casey and Jack Vermillion, making Earl V. Pike angry has turned into a cross-country nightmare. But taking him down will be even worse.

Review:

"[A] ferociously driven, intricately woven thriller....Stroud provides a brutally frank glimpse into government deceit, personal ambition and criminal motivation." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Densely stylish....In a field overrun with snapping jaws, this bites through the bone." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Review:

"Black Water Transit is a nerve-jangling thrill ride — taut, gritty, gripping, edgy, and very well-written. Carsten Stroud has given us an enthralling crime novel. Very highly recommended." Harlan Coben, author of Tell No One and Darkest Fear

Review:

"I made a terrible mistake with this book — just before bedtime I read the first chapter and met Earl V. Pike, 'an aerodynamic little mook named Martin Glazer,' and a small crowd of crazy S.O.B.s who murdered my sleep til 5 AM. I read to the last page of this wild, scary, uninhibited ride and wanted to start all over again. So I did. Carsten Stroud has always been in the front rank of suspense novelists. This is his best." Jack Olsen, author of The Last Man Standing: The Tragedy and Triumph of Geronimo Pratt and The Night of the Grizzlies

Review:

"Black Water Transit is a roller-coaster ride into a dark world of corruption, ruthlessness and high intrigue. Psychologically penetrating and peopled with unforgettable characters, this is tough-minded suspense fiction at its finest." Jonathan Kellerman, author of Dr. Death

Review:

"Carsten Stroud knows cops, feds, and criminals, but in Black Water Transit he gives us much more than anecdotes and dry facts. This is exciting fiction that moves. It's hard, fast, and real." George P. Pelecanos, author of Right as Rain
