Fathom is a slight departure from the first five Ben Bass Mysteries. This tale finds Captain Bass sailing in Western Caribbean waters in one of Windward Islands Bare Boats' thirty-seven foot sloops.... More > It is also a factual look at the failed Bay of Pigs invasion and a review of the resulting, disastrous air battle. The real aerial combat that pitted modified WWII B-26 Marauders against Castro’s high-speed, piston- and jet-engine fighters is covered, the losses are memorialized and a possible unintended outcome is added. The reader is taken back to those fateful days in 1961 when the world watched as a few thousand counterrevolutionaries struggled unsuccessfully to thwart the Fidel Castro’s communist takeover of Cuba. These events are reviewed while an imagined outcome provides modern-day events in the Caribbean Sea. A leased sailboat is rammed and sunk, the ultimate fate of the crew is investigated, and Captain Ben Bass finds himself in the middle of another adventure.< Less

What has a new sailboat designed to resemble the old Chesapeake Bay Schooner, ancient relics from the early days of the Roman Empire, and a stray cat with an uncanny ability have to do with each... More > other? Captain Ben Bass and Sam Ko, the owner of Windward Islands Bare Boats, form a new company to enter in the luxury cruise industry, only to have one of their captains become a murder victim. As Ben Bass tries to make sense of the crime, he becomes a target and almost loses his own life twice and on two different islands nearly 5,000 miles apart. The Caribbean is only a small stage in the tragedies that have plagued the world-wide luxury cruise industry. While many people enjoy cruising vacations without incident, there nevertheless appears to be an inordinate number of cruise line accidents at sea -- accidents that may have been the result of an organized attempt to profit from the misery of others. Like it or not, Ben Bass finds himself squarely in the middle of the action in this, his latest adventure.< Less

Imagine a world without quality. That world is coming. Quality is being assassinated by mediocrity. We are told that a rising tide lifts all boats. A rising tide of mediocrity makes everything... More > mediocre and drowns everything of quality. You can’t find any quality because it is surrounded by so much mediocrity. Nietzsche said, “The higher we soar the smaller we seem to those who cannot fly.” Mediocre people cannot recognize quality. For them, it’s tiny, very far away, and irrelevant to their lives. Vicki Corona wrote, “Remember that life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away!” In the land of mediocrity, life is measured more and more by the former and features none of the latter. We live in a muzak world, a world of sanitized, sterilized elevator music, designed to be as innocuous as possible, forming a uniform background, a background of absolute, mind-wiping mediocrity. The whole world is becoming like that. What will you do about it?< Less

Again, the light skiff, ceasing to shoot through the lazy water as when the oars flashed and dripped, glided out of the fierce July sunlight into the cool shade of the great drooping willow branches—I standing up in the swaying boat, she sitting still and with deft fingers guarding herself from stray twigs or the freedom of the resilience of moving boughs. Again, the water looked golden-brown under the canopy of translucent green; and the grassy bank was of emerald hue. Again, we sat in the cool shade, with the myriad noises of nature both without and within our bower merging into that drowsy hum in whose sufficing...< Less
