Stroud has written his most gripping novel to date, a high-voltage tale of betrayal, revenge, and redemption - deeply rooted in the violent underworld of East Coast crime.Jack Vermillion is an ex-Marine who came back from Vietnam and turned a two-truck shipping outfit into a multimillion-dollar empire. His work is his life. His only grief, a son, Danny is now serving a ten-year sentence for armed robbery. But a desperate late-night phone call from Danny, in the prison clinic after a suicide attempt, forces Jack to go looking for a federal deal to save him. What follows it is a heart-stopping, explosively paced novel of suspense. Black Water Transit is a tough and gritty take on what it means to be trapped on the wrong side of the law - and what can happen when a pretty good guy takes on the really bad ones.
