Waiting for minimum critic reviews


While today’s real world slowly grapples with the causes and consequences of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the flood of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border of the United States, Stan Rogers, the entrepreneurial hero of Don Anderson’s trilogy (Deadly Calm; Seas the Day; and Golden Results) employs a different method. Successful and wealthy due to his skills and vision in the world of technology, Rogers seeks to give back by addressing the global issues of the day. Rogers already has had a great impact on the issues of population control, drug running, illegal immigration, and unsustainable fishing practices. In Golden Results, Rogers turns his attention to energy. Combining both realism and idealism, Rogers cuts through the usual bureaucratic red tape while playing by a set of rules that will address a level field. Not everyone in the story does. Political intrigue includes red tape designed to trip-up Rogers and to marginalize his ideas and vision, while powerful cartel leaders, seeing Rogers’ energy project as a threat to their drug routes, play by a different set of rules, trailing death behind them as they try to kill the project. The venue is Baja California and the ocean with the array of fish that live within. Whether the challenger takes on dorado, speedy tuna, strong trevelly, or spectacular tarpon in native waters-or monstrous billfish prowling the oceans with weapon unsheathed-the chance of success or failure looms at any time. So it is when Stan fishes; so it is when Stan addresses a global problem. A strong sense of conservation winds through the story like a line pulled from the reel by a powerful fish yet linked to a fisherman who knows and values the integrity of the sea and its inhabitants.

About Don Anderson

Capt. Don Anderson began a lifelong love affair with the sea in the early 1950’s. Working on party boats out of San Diego under some of the legends of the sportfishing industry, then moving into commercial fishing with a string of his own boats, he worked the Pacific Coast of California and Mexico for Albacore, Yellowtail, Barracuda, and Swordfish. After a break for college and a more steady income, he finally had a couple of nickels to rub together and began fishing more remote places for saltwater gamefish. Building on local sport and commercial experience, he became a successful big game angler, catching Wahoo, Tuna, Blue and Striped Marlin, and Sailfish. Tagging and releasing over 200 billfish in recent years reaffirmed his respect for these creatures. Aware of how blessed he is to interact with the sea, his belief is that fishermen themselves, not the politicians, could be the best consultants to the governments and scientists attempting to maintain sustainable fish populations. He also believes most anyone can become a successful saltwater angler if they learn the fundamentals, stay alert, and position themselves in the best place at the best times.
