About this title


AT FIRST IT WAS THE MONEY, THEN IT BECAME REVENGE. Summer, 1928, Rusty loses his job as a Lake Erie tugboat deckhand and can no longer afford his charter boat business. Out of work, out of hope and with a family to feed, he desperately turns to hauling grape juice for the mysterious Trapani clan despite his suspicions. After several successful trips, Al Trapani offers him an opportunity to run illegal alcohol from Canada. Rusty reluctantly agrees to try it just once. As Rusty slips into the underground world of rum running, he comes to realize he is losing far more than his principles-he is jeopardizing his marriage and his life. But getting out is not easy. Hunted by a sadistic renegade Coast Guard captain, Rusty soon finds himself in the captain's crosshair, forcing him to challenge not only his principles, but his perception of good and evil. The 1920s roar to life as Rusty's rum running legend grows.  "...a believable plot based on historical fact...brings history and events to life through Rusty's eyes and experiences. It's all these elements, wound into a satisfying and realistic story line backed by historical fact, that make Rum Run a winning account."-D. Donovan, Senior eBook Reviewer, Midwest Book Review. "...a hit with boaters, Lyman owners and anyone who loves a good read."-Heidi Langer, Program Manager, Lyman Boat Owners Association.


"Rum Run opens with a scene that sets the dynamic mood, and that excitement is sustained throughout the novel. ...a wonderful blending of historical realism and fictional characters..."                      Jacqueline Justice, PhD, Associate Professor, Bowling Green State University Firelands College for Great Lakes Historical Society's Inland Seas.

"The author's superior knowledge of the Lake Erie's southern shore is excellent. She drew me into the era...the action is exciting when introduced. I highly recommend this book."                                                  Jeff Westerhoff, reviewer for Historical Novel Society 

"With intense description and characters you'll love (or hate), R.C. Durkee holds readers breezing through this engaging tale of love, wickedness, revenge and morality."                                          Rick Porrello, author of To Kill the Irishman and Superthief

"...a satisfying and realistic story line backed by historical fact that make Rum Run a winning account...embraces psychological depth as well as higher levels of politics in deception...that's what sets Rum Run apart from many other stories of Prohibition activities."                                        D. Donovan, Senior eBook Reviewer for Midwest Book Review

"This story has more twists and turns than you can believe and each page keeps you more riveted to keep reading."                           Ken Kohler, reviewer for Sandusky Maritime Museum's Messenger, and Clinker- Lyman Boat Owners Association publication.
