DOUG DANIELSON, nautical author of “Shore Loser,” received a glowing 5 star review for his latest, “Sea-Duction.” Maureen Fisher said “This is my first Douglas Danielson book, and definitely not the last. This fast-paced nautical action adventure set in San Diego and Catalina hooked me on page one and kept me entertained until the end. I particularly enjoyed the multi-layered characters, particularly Jake, with his party-hearty attitude and his up-and-down relationship with his exotic and complicated lady-love. I’m looking forward to reading more about Jake and all his friends in another Jake Mortensen Mystery.”
