    1. It s July 1976, and New York City is getting ready for the arrival of ships from all over the world Taylor is out on a police boat, when a woman s dead body is found submerged next to the piers, with bags of what may be drugs tied around her Everyone from the news service to the police want his story buried until after the tourists leave, but Taylor digs in to see why she was killed His first theory is a battle for dealing heroin in NYC, but wives are not supposed to be targeted Then, the denial [...]

    2. This is my first introduction to this author and this series There are two prior books in this series Although, this book can be read as a stand alone novel I will say that having not read the other two books I did not have that established relationship which might have helped a little where this book was concerned Yet, from what I read of this book, I did like Taylor s style As a police reporter sometimes you can t just take no for an answer and have to go to where the story is As a whole this [...]

    3. A reporter by trade, Coleridge Taylor refuses to remain the doormat his superiors want him to be He yearns to cover stories that matter the most Stories that pique the reader s interest from the moment they open up their daily newspapers Taking on one of the newspaper s fluff pieces, he never once imagines how much his life will change from that moment on.Though I ve come into this series via this third book, I must say that A Black Sail reads like a standalone novel It provides enough informati [...]

    4. If it weren t for the dead woman with two bullets through one eye, a rib breaking Mafia goon, a merciless drug pushing Chinese gang and a bent FBI agent, Rich Zahradnik s new murder mystery A Black Sail might be shoehorned into the category of historical fiction But his story s backdrop of the 1976 Tall Ships celebration in New York is just an extra treat in this page turner about the latest adventures of Coleridge Taylor, the intrepid police reporter who just won t say no in his quest to figure [...]

    5. Looking at the photo on the front of A Black Sail, I thought the book would be about pirates So wrong It is actually about a crime beat newspaper reporter in 1976 New York who is tasked with covering the Bicentennial parade of ships, much to his dismay Coleridge Taylor would rather be hunting down Chinese mobsters who he thinks murdered the wife of a rival mobster s son Taylor single mindedly tracks down leads and gets himself into trouble, only to be rescued by his girlfriend, a former NYPD off [...]

    6. This book offers a flash from the past back to New York City s bad old days in the 1970s Taylor, while out to get a story and get back to the crime beat, is complex and has a good heart I enjoyed this harsh and commanding crime novel.

    7. I liked the first two books of this series but this one just had me uninterested throughout the entire book.

    8. Having seen and appreciated the Tall Ships, during our country s bicentennial, I appreciated the locale of A Black Sail, by Rich Zahradnik The back and forth between the ships and the city arced the story from mob to tong and city to harbor The major protagonist, Coleridge Taylor is not only jumping and ducking locales, but the bad guys, too Taylor is an investigative reporter who isn t assigned to investigate the murder of the poor woman who was dragged up from the harbor, but he wants to needs [...]

    11. I received this book for free in return for an honest review.I enjoyed this story about Taylor, a journalist, investigating crime and corruption in New York during the 1976 Bicentennial Celebration The story grabs you almost immediately when a woman s dead body is fished out of the river with plastic bags of heroin taped to her waist The story keeps your interest with the twist and turns that happen, but the plot is easy to follow I would recommend this story to anyone that enjoys crime and myst [...]

    12. 3.5 5.0The story opens with the historical tall ships display, and raises a bit of nostalgia for anyone who lived during the U.S Bicentennial.Read full review in the 2016 October issue of InD tale Magazine.

    13.
