In the tradition of Clive Cussler, comes a novel of suspense and adventure set on the big water of the Great Lakes. Erin Franklin will do what it takes to take down Mid-Con, a waste management company that has been playing fast and loose with the law. An environmental crusader, known in the industry as the Iron Maiden, Erin doesn't know what she is getting herself into this time when she is discovered hiding on Mid-Con's property.Judge Franklin has his own bone to pick with Mid-Con. They are up on new charges and back in his courtroom again. Willard Reiger, owner of Mid-Con, has had enough of little miss eco-crusader sniffing around his business, not to mention the latest trumped up charges of illegal dumping. Having built his company from nothing, he is not about to let anyone take it away from him. He will do what it takes to keep it.Conservation Officer Rick Webb still doesn't understand why Judge Franklin dismissed the case against Mid-Con. The evidence was ironclad; it was a slam-dunk. Frustrated by the setback, Webb is looking forward to a vacation on Water Baby, a classic sailing yawl and his pride and joy. His first mate is Heywood the cat; otherwise he is on his own. But his vacation is cut short unexpectedly when he is unwittingly drawn into a fight for his life - and for the purity of the pristine water of Lake Huron. When he realizes that the fates of two innocent people are at stake, he uses all his knowhow and his guts to set things right.Non-stop action, tight pacing and believable characters make this an excellent read for anyone wanting to escape into a nautical adventure sprinkled with romance. Because of its setting and authentic descriptions, this story really delivers for sailing and boating enthusiasts and lovers of nature.

About the Author
David Ferguson is a retired Ontario conservation officer (CO) who invested 24 years of his career working in three diverse regions of the province with the Ministry of Natural Resources. And to be clear, being a CO is a vocation, a calling, - it is not just a 'job'. In that profession, he learned that successful law enforcement is an intense study of human behaviour. On the job, he met and dealt with a wide variety of people - a great many good, law abiding folks and then some others who landed on the wrong side of the law. Even the people who broke the law included an assortment of characters ranging from those who accidently 'slipped' over the line and maybe deserved a bit of a break, to outright bad guys you wouldn't want to turn your back on. Many of the latter group are also known to the police. Dave and his family, plus cats and dogs, have sailed Georgian Bay aboard a yawl that bears a remarkable resemblance to Water Baby, further validating the story-line in this book. They have sailed to, and visited the islands and coves detailed in these pages. As an avid reader of fiction himself, Dave knows that his career provided him with a wealth of human characteristics and a variety of geographic locations that could be woven into fictional characters and places in some exciting imaginary adventure stories. This one is his first. Dave lives with his wife Pat in northern Ontario, and when they are not on the road touring the continent, he can be found out on the lake in the summer, or feeding the wood stove in the cooler seasons while conjuring up his next story.
