Caly’s Island

By Dick Herman

From New York Times bestselling author Dick Herman comes another non-stop action thriller, certain to grip fans of the author as well as readers of contemporary fantasy.

Six skilled retirees are meeting up for a sailing trip, a break from their action-packed former lives. These aging giants, calling themselves the ‘freakin’ old guys’ are hard-working leaders in their respective fields and have a menagerie of skills to show for it.

But what starts out as a dream quickly turns into a nightmare.

With these guys, the action never stops.

While preparing to set sail, they have a run in with a teenage troublemaker that plagues the locals. The son of a senator, Sean has no respect for authority and is a little lost. The FOGs come from an era where a little rough handling never hurt anyone, and so strike a deal with Sean’s mother to have him sail along with them. She agrees, hoping that two weeks of hard work alongside six respected, intelligent men will get Sean turned around.

Things quickly take a turn for the worst when the six small boats get caught in the crossfire of a mafia drug deal.

It soon becomes clear that some of the group’s members may be hiding secrets and past lives from the others…

Suddenly, the six boats are caught in an odd fog bank, and when they come out the other side, things are not as they seem. Their radios and compasses no longer work and time seems to have lost its way.

Where are they?

Things quickly start to defy the accepted order of things.

Suddenly dropped into their own Odyssey, they fight against strange creatures and demi-goddesses as they try to find a way back home. Together, they must navigate this strange new land.

Caly’s Island is a rip-roaring pseudo-fantasy thriller of a modern quest to conquer the unknown amongst seas of turmoil.
