Product Description

J.D. Stanton has set sail with two Navy men and a crew of five troubled teenagers. Two days out they encounter a strange storm that damages their craft and leaves them on an eerie sea with no way to take a bearing. Suddenly a dark object emerges through the mist--HMS Archer--a long lost WWI British military ship. Stanton and his shipmates board the ship but find no trace of the crew, only their belongings.

Soon Stanton realizes they are on a ship that is "out of time"--and they are out of time, too, because one of the teenagers needs immediate medical treatment. Stanton and the others begin to catch ghostly glimpses of the original crew. Stanton learns that one of the "ghosts" had planned to murder the crew of the Archer. Now one of the teens is bonding with that murderer. Will he attempt to murder Stanton's crew, too?

Publisher's Description

The fog released more of the ship. As he watched the bow slowly emerge, Stanton saw something that made his gut twist. “This can’t be.” Stanton stared at the gray-white battleship. “It’s a Dreadnought.” But that kind of ship ceased sailing three-quarters of a century ago. It starts as a trip to help five troubled teens, courtesy of a new Navy youth program. With retired submarine commander J.D. Stanton serving as captain and two young naval officers heading the expedition, the state-of-the-art catamaran leaves port. It’s a routine voyage . . . until a mysterious storm pulls Stanton and his crew into an eerie world of swirling mist and silence. There is no sun, no moon or stars, no way to take a bearing. Electrical appliances fail. The diesel engine is sullen and unresponsive. And then, out of the mist, a ship slowly appears—H.M.S. Archer, a pre-WW1 Dreadnought. A ship missing since 1913. The antique vessel holds disturbing surprises: a ghostly crew . . . evidence of a mass murder . . . and a thousand questions. Now J.D. Stanton and his untried team must discover the answers—before this ship out of time leads them to their destruction.

Publisher's Weekly

This well-paced Christian mystery features strong writing, an original plot and ambitious use of time travel and theoretical physics. Captain J.D. Stanton (featured in two previous Gansky thrillers) brings five troubled teenagers on a weeklong sailing expedition to learn values and, he hopes, a bit about Christian faith. A terrible squall disrupts their trip and leaves them "dead in the water" (without electricity or communications); then a 1907 battleship, uninhabited and seemingly untouched by time, appears out of the fog. One of the teens must overcome his own pain and bitterness to save the ghost ship from being destroyed and save his companions as well. Gansky is a skilled writer, and readers who are interested in naval history will enjoy this unusual maritime suspense novel. (Oct.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
