Seven clinical psychology students from the University of Maine come face to face with death when their exciting delivery of a new sailboat to Florida turns into a tragic event. Author Joe Miller invites fiction-thriller enthusiasts to follow Captain Charles and his six crews as they sail from Maine to Florida and experience the horrifying summer break of their lives in High Adventure.

This book follows the story of Charles and his six friends who are tasked to deliver the new sailboat, Bounder, to Florida from Maine. Everything about their trip starts nicely—not to overlook the sailboat’s beauty, all shiny white fiberglass and sleek lines and reliable mechanical features—but then everything goes downhill. Soon, ghosts and death visit on the high seas. Four crew members spend time in a dungeon but save a 20-year-old kid. The adventure turns into a horrible nightmare. Will they be able to get to Florida and go back to college in Maine without losing any member of the crew?

Spine-chilling, filled with ghostly romantic images and many other jaw-dropping scenes, High Adventure is a transfixing novel that will take readers at the edge of their seats, gasping and wanting for more of Miller’s absorbing threads.
