    Even if I hadn t read his two previous novels of the Hank Crawford trilogy , William McCloskey s Raiders would still rate as an excellent story Any mentions of events from the other two books were bonuses as far as I was concered They added depth to a novel that was already way beyond the 200 mile limit on its own strengths.Mr McCloskey writes with an expertice of the fishing industry that also has a soul, allowing us to feel the ice cold Alaskan water as it trickles down our oilskins, or get a sense of the exhaustion that one would feel after spending hard hours either on the deck of the vessel or in the wheelhouse As we read, we become familiar with both levels of shipboard responsibility, and we are drawn to the characters with which McCloskey has populated this beautiful yet potentially deadly world A world where a deckhand s misstep can send him overboard to a watery grave, a captain s mistake can send his ship to the bottom of sea, and where an error in judgement can cost a man everything he has worked for.Whether onboard a ship, or in the corporate offices of international fishing consortiums, William McCloskey s skill as a writer puts us in the center of the action, standing next to Hank Crawford as an invisible, but far from disengaged observer in this excellent book.
