Alaska charter boat captain Frank Mattituck has established a tranquil fishing life that allows him to keep the haunting of his past at bay. He has a successful business and a solitary personal life that provides him control over his world. That is, until his sense of justice is awakened by the murder of a close friend and his solitude is broken by the rekindling of his relationship with Monica Castle. Suddenly, Mattituck finds he can no longer hide, and he finds himself helping State Trooper Todd Benson track down killers and criminals in Alaska, forming a unique crime-fighting duo.

In Skipper’s Oath, the first book in The Frank Mattituck Series, Mattituck’s life is turned upside-down by the disappearance of a friend. Mattituck sets out to find him, only to find himself face-to-face with a ruthless killer who turns his attention on Mattituck. The killer chases him through the Alaska wilderness and seas, and Mattituck must tap into his outdoors ingenuity to survive.

Frank Mattituck and Trooper Todd Benson embark on a wild pursuit of the ruthless killer terrorizing the waters of Prince William Sound. Mattituck goes from Charter Boat Skipper to taking an oath to serve the law enforcement needs of the people of Alaska, ultimately putting him at a crossroads where he can either walk away and continue his life of hiding, or square off with his demons and make a difference in the world around him. 

 Skipper's Oath (The Frank Mattituck #1)
by P. Wesley Lundburg

Skipper's Oath (The Frank Mattituck #1)Murder and drugs will bring one salty charter boat captain into a web of danger, tearing him out of the private cocoon of tranquility he has built for himself on the Alaskan waters. Frank Mattituck is a solitary man, a little gruff, and very private, but when one of his best friends goes missing and his fishing yacht is found adrift, Mattituck will stop at nothing to seek justice for the dead.
Pairing up with Alaskan State Trooper, Todd Benson, these unlikely allies will become a dynamic duo who will stop at nothing to bring down a drug ring and the runners who are killing innocents left and right.

SKIPPER’S OATH by P. Wesley Lundburg is one part action and adventure, one part super-sleuthing and one part armchair heroes’ delight. Hang on tight, grab your life vest, bullet-proof, is preferred and prepare to be plunged headfirst into a tale of death, drugs and suspense as a newly deputized Mattituck crisscrosses the waters, even using himself as bait to bring down a trained killer who excels in his work.

Enjoy a "man's man," hero, a little damaged, a little worn by life, but never afraid to step up when the SOS is signaled. Straight-shooting writing, on point at every twist and turn, discover a new hero, new adventure and feel the spray of the water, the displacement of a bullet whizzing past and become part of the action as you try to plot what YOU think their next move should be.

I received this copy from P. Wesley Lundburg in exchange for my honest and voluntary review.
