Continuing with his tradition of releasing a new book each year, Crosslake author Mike Holst is especially proud of this year’s release, his ninth published book.

The book, “Coming Home at Last,” takes place in Boston and the South Pacific. It’s a clever and intriguing story of Devon Harrington, a young college professor who gets caught up in an espionage plot with an old Navy buddy. Then, lost at sea for weeks, Devon is rescued but barely survives and is nursed back to health by Annie, his rescuer.

His life from that day on takes many twists and turns, as he is torn between his love for his wife back home and his love for Annie. The whole story gets more complicated when Devon finds out he is wanted for his bad deeds by the government and is technically a man without a country.

The book is available in soft cover or e-file at Barnes & Noble, Amazon or from the iuniverse bookstore.

Signed copies are for sale at Reeds Market in Crosslake or by contacting the author at
