Coast Guard Blues
Kenneth Arbogast, author
A U.S. Coast Guard small boat is found adrift in the Canadian waters of Lake Superior. The four-person crew is missing. The crew made no distress calls, and merchant freighters passing through the area reported nothing unusual. Facing challenges from Congress and other nations, the Coast Guard's commandant summons a Coast Guard special agent to investigate the disappearance. The investigation uncovers a smuggling operation that threatens to destroy a vital international shipping route.
