A Dangerous Harbor by R.P. Dahlke

This series, starting with A Dangerous Harbor, is the result of sailing in  Mexico  aboard our cutter rigged Hylas 47 sailboat. A Dangerous Harbor is based in Ensenada and is, as most California sailors know, first port of call into Baja, Mexico after San Diego. Most of the town is clustered around the harbor where working marinas like Baja Naval still service American boaters. I found this sleepy little town to be fascinating, full of endless stories, with a culture that was, and still is, struggling to gain a foothold in the 21st Century.

The irony is that I started this book ten years ago, based on a local news story, which at the time was staggering in its brutality. This story is no longer unique as the Mexican Cartels daily murder with impunity. But, just as the cartels are not all that is Mexico, this story isn’t all about them, it’s about what happens when you try to run away from your problems and it’s about Americans, the ones passing through and the ones stuck in A Dangerous Harbor.  The irony is that I started this book ten years ago, based on a local news story, which at the time was staggering in its brutality.
