About the Book

Devon Harrington had his world the way he wanted it. He had a great job teaching at the college and the love of his life, Margie, to come home to each evening in their snug home in Suburban Boston. Then a dream trip to the Galapagos for research came along and he jumped at the chance. It was the South Seas adventure he had often dreamed about.

Then out of nowhere his old Navy Seal buddy Arnie came along and offered him a chance to make some fast money. More money then Devon had seen in a while. ”Take this instrument with you and leave it in the Galapagos” he said. “Simple as that and no one will be the wiser. The only stipulation is--it’s our little secret.”

But a storm sank the schooner on the way and Devon nearly died before washing ashore weeks later on a radioactive atoll. Nursed back to life by the islands only inhabitant, Devon couldn’t wait to be rescued and get back home to Margie. A formable task seeing he had no boat, didn’t know where he was and was increasingly torn by his love for his rescuer. Then he found a way, and then he also found out he was a wanted man, without a country and without a wife.

About the Author

Mike Holst is a native Minnesotan who grew up in the area and now lives and writes in North Central Minnesota and has been actively writing for the last 13 years. He is a weekly columnist for the Northland Press, a local newspaper that serves a lot of people in the lakes area and has built himself quite a following. He is a regular contributor to the Brainerd MN. Dispatch and several outdoor magazines. His real pride however is in his fiction novels. He has published nine novels, over the last ten years, all Minnesota stories except two, and all so very different.

Mike’s stories are unique because they are all so different and you may find it hard to believe the same author wrote them all. They include police mysteries, survival stories and a bit of the super natural. All stories, done so real, you will believe they really happened. His characters really come to life for you, with his attention to detail and descriptive writing.
