The Keeper by Tom Bruno


Tom Bruno tells us that Farrell's Island is only a myth, something that the old salts of Cape Ann whisper about in hushed tones after one too many drinks at the bar. When two unlucky fishermen set out in search of the island their obsession is going to catch them more than they'd bargained for.
This short story has a very authentic setting in the lives of two ardent fishermen.
It is well written with a good balance of narrative and dialogue.
The development of the story was not to my personal taste but that is in no way to detract from the skill of the writer.
I would be interested to read something of greater substance by this author.
