Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting - Enough is Enough
    The Gulf series is dedicated to the young men and women of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Parkland Florida. You are the tip of the spear piercing the shield the demagogues hide behind. Courage, with poise, while under fire, creates legend. Thanks for standing up to be counted.

Peace & Love,
Rick Beck


    "The Gulf & the Cove" is a story about Ivan being home to stay. He has big plans for the cove but the old Bait Shop and a dozen slips in the marina hardly amount to the empire Ivan envisions.
    Clay lets Ivan back into his life faster than he thought was possible. Ivan is saying the right things. He's making the right moves. This piece of Clay's life comes together but his career is coming apart. Recapturing his passion for the sea is impossible. On the rise as an expert on the Gulf of Mexico and things in the sea, Clay struggles to regain his momentum.
    Ivan's plan for the cove takes shape, Clay doubts Ivan can pull off such an ambitious project but Captain Popov allies with Ivan.
    Popov controls the cove and the businesses there but he can't control the unexpected spate of trouble. The cove has been a port in the storm far from the world that's always in trouble.
    Ivan's instincts have him refusing to back away from danger. If more trouble is coming, he'll face it head on, but trouble has a habit of coming at you when your back is turned.
    Popov's vigilance pays off. He isn't far away when trouble returns.
    Will the Russian captain of the fishing fleet be able to save the people he loves?

    Thank you Jerry for your contribution to the Gulf series, and for your years of making my stories easier to read. Without your astute observations, there may not have been Gulf 2, and now, Gulf 3 joins Gulf 1 and 2. Could there be a Gulf 4 in our future? Time will tell.

Note: It is suggested the reader start with book one in order to immerse oneself in the entire experience.
