Praise for Wright Gres and Macedonia Passage:
"Macedonia Passage is a high-stakes, intricate thriller, filled with memorable characters and explosive action. But what truly sets it apart from the rest of the genre is first-time author Wright Gres' knowledge and love of the high seas, where much of the book is set. The sequences on the ocean come alive with the sure-handed understanding that only one who is intimate with the world of boats and seas can manage. Anyone who has ever spent a minute staring out across the waves and felt the pull of the tides themselves will feel right at home in this novel. That the tale he tells is both topical and devilishly exciting, is an added bonus."
--- John Katzenbach , author of 10 novels, including Hart's War, The Madman's Tale, and The Wrong Man
"Let's hope this is the first of many books from Wright Gres! Macedonia Passage is a fast-paced adventure that is brimming with suspense and rich in the history and culture of the Aegean. I was captivated by the story, the colorful characters, and the underlying knowledge and love for the area, and for the sea."
--- David W. Singleton, Deputy State Librarian, Georgia Public Library Service
"Wright Gres writes with real knowledge of the Mediterranean and boats. I enjoyed every page of Macedonia Passage. Exciting and enthralling!"
--- Mary Charles , author of the Casey Forbes mysteries
"Macedonia Passage is an intriguing and captivating story...a great book to read on a cruise!"
-- Charley Morgan , Yacht designer and builder, founder of Morgan Yacht Corporation.
"Macedonia may be landlocked country but this wild sea adventure will not be restrained by physical boundaries. The reader travels the high seas from the New World to the Bosporus aboard the Belle Tata, a schooner, captained by Mike Brown, He and his crew become wrapped up in a nest of international intrigue that haunts them across the Atlantic and into the Mediterranean. The cast of characters changes during the journey and it is often due to death or conspiracy.This first novel will broaden your understanding of nautical operations and the workings of a boat. A swing of the Belle Tata sails is likely to move you on to another chapter or should I say port. A great read for the beach or an evening by the fire."
---Tom Ploeg, State Librarian of Georgia, retired
