A retired widowed captain, Richard Mariner, is the main character in The Coffin Ship. The plot is a mixture of greed, revenge and murder, and once past the discombobulated beginning (and perhaps for some, the end) the story clears up quickly and "catches" the reader. I enjoyed reading this book as the twists and turns kept the villain/s identity unconfirmed. Looking up an occasional word or two while reading is ok, but too many are just "speed bumps." The twists and turns kept the villian/s identity hidden which made the story more enjoyable. I would recommend this book with advising about the beginning chapters and the dictionary look ups.
