There he meets the eminent professor, Gordon Stone, and his beautiful wife, Judith Silver, with whom he soon falls into a passionate affair.

Yet caught between two women, David bears witness to a heartbreaking turn of events that seems as inevitable as the push and pull of ocean waves. . . .
Praise For Storm Tide…
"Storm Tide is a great mystery, an intelligent political thriller, and an emotional hurricane. It's also erotic to the core, and written to read as fast as a fierce nor'easter blowing hard across turbulent water."
"AN ENGROSSING READ . . . GENUINELY SUSPENSEFUL . . . Piercy and Wood do a fine job of fleshing out the characters, their diverse backgrounds, and their changing perceptions of one another."
--The Washington Times
Storm Tide "speaks with one powerful voice, moving inexorably toward tragedy even as it offers a hint of redemption."
--The New York Times Book Review
"A carefully, artfully, and . . . seamlessly told story . . . The reader is totally engrossed in this stylish depiction of small-town politics, sexual vulnerability, [and] insecurity of the heart."
