The Sea Is Silent

When Seth MacClellan, an ambitious white-collar crime reporter for a large newspaper in Atlanta, completely botches an investigative story, he brings shame and financial ruin to both himself and the paper. He’s also reeling from the loss of the love of his life. In an effort to disappear and start over, he takes a menial job as the fishing reporter with a small paper on the coast of Virginia.

During late nights on a misty pier looking over the sea, he latches onto another investigative story that he hopes will bring him redemption as a journalist and perhaps even allow him to love again. But his relentless pursuit of the truth takes him down another ominous path that could end up killing more than just his career.

Reviews

"Is there anything more addictive than a good quest-for-redemption story? Seth McClellan, recovering from the dual blows of lost love and career Armageddon, is setting out to uncover a criminal conspiracy in a small beach town, with a rogues’ gallery of colorful locals at his back. All this is brought to life by the deft hand of Cameron Kent, whose way with North Carolina color and relatable characters will delight mystery readers."
