Red Herring is a story about courage triumphant over fear. It's a mystery set in the Pacific Northwest - in Bellingham, Washington and the San Juan Islands. When radar spots a vessel heading toward an oil refinery, a Coast Guard patrol is dispatched, and an unmanned boat operating under autopilot is intercepted. Then the Coast Guard discovers explosives aboard, along with a note threatening the construction of a pipeline beneath an environmentally sensitive body of water. Fear of terrorism erupts. Ex-coast guard commander Charlie Noble, now a marine private investigator, agrees to search for the man most believe is behind the bomb plot. But Noble steps into a dangerous, puzzling web of intrigue involving corporate greed, Homeland Security, and murder. Through personal courage, gritty determination and uncompromising honor, he unravels the truth.
