OUT OF TIME

Alton L. Gansky, Author . Zondervan $12.99 (352p) ISBN 978-0-310-24959-7

This well-paced Christian mystery features strong writing, an original plot and ambitious use of time travel and theoretical physics. Captain J.D. Stanton (featured in two previous Gansky thrillers) brings five troubled teenagers on a weeklong sailing expedition to learn values and, he hopes, a bit about Christian faith. A terrible squall disrupts their trip and leaves them "dead in the water" (without electricity or communications); then a 1907 battleship, uninhabited and seemingly untouched by time, appears out of the fog. One of the teens must overcome his own pain and bitterness to save the ghost ship from being destroyed—and save his companions as well. Gansky is a skilled writer, and readers who are interested in naval history will enjoy this unusual maritime suspense novel. (Oct.)
