About this title

From the Back Cover:

Sheldon Burton Webster draws on his intimate knowledge of international finance and his experience as a transatlantic sailor in his riveting debut novel, Voyage of the Encounter. The 434 page novel, published by Rutledge Books, is due in bookstores in the fall of 1998.

The plot opens as the high rolling days of insider trading of the 1980's are coming to an end. Investment banker Peter Slade is in trouble. The S.E.C. has closed in on Peter, and he's about to go to prison. Grabbing at the deal the Feds offer him, he agrees to work undercover for the government on a single case of the S.E.C.'s choosing sometime within the next five years.

Time passes, and Peter begins again. He marries a beautiful New England socialite and becomes the proprietor of a gracious New England inn. He has almost forgotten his government obligation-- when the Feds call in their marker.

Peter had been set to crew on a sleek, state-of-the-art sailboat in the highly competitive Newport / Bermuda yacht race. That's just where S.E.C. agent Flynn O'Grady wants Peter, as Flynn is setting Peter up to reveal the existence of his illegally earned millions which have been secreted in a Bermuda bank.

Will Peter somehow find an ally in Carolina Barrington, a woman whose own notorious past as a New York madam has led to a similar agreement with the Feds? And, above all, why does Flynn O'Grady, a hard-drinking, hard-bitten S.E.C. agent, hate Peter Slade so much?

Financial intrigue takes a backseat as Voyage of the Encounter becomes a taut high seas adventure. A curious collection of men make up the crew that sails the yacht Encounter on its perilous journey southward. Will the Encounter win the coveted Lighthouse Trophy? Will Peter outwit the federal agent in his intricate plot of blackmail and revenge, or will he lose his money and his freedom?

Sheldon Burton Webster, who is currently working on his second novel, has visited every location in his book and personally survived terrifying incidents similar to those depicted on the Encounter. The plot is convincingly authentic. So grab a life preserver and enjoy The Voyage of the Encounter, Webster's exhilarating, high stakes thriller.
