Douglass Seaver, The Fourth Rule

Mark Grant returns from Vietnam, retreats to his family’s hunting camp in Maine, and disappears. Twenty-two years later, a senator ready to announce for his party’s nomination for President initiates a clandestine investigation to uncover what happened. Two investigators, sent by the CIA, question Matthew Grant, the soldier’s younger brother, a widower with a sixteen year old daughter, about his brother’s disappearance, and the dark secret Matthew has kept for over two decades is threatened; a secret that Matthew will risk everything to protect.



Over the course of twenty-five years as a business executive and management consultant, Douglass Seaver has authored professional articles, guest editorials, and a chapter in a marketing textbook, and delivered the Ray E. Brown Memorial Lecture at Duke University, which was subsequently published.


In 2007, Nautical Publishing Company published his nonfiction book, Four Across the Atlantic, that tells the story of the 2004 historic voyage in which a fleet of 18

privately owned power boats successfully crossed the Atlantic Ocean for the first time in history.


In March of 2008 George S. Nammack gave the book a full page laudatory review in Boating World, and the 2008-09 issue ofCircumnavigator named the book one of the Best Guides for crossing the Atlantic.


In 2010 his short story, “The Auction”, won second place in the annual Writers’ Journal short fiction contest and was published in the magazine’s December issue.  Seaver has completed the two-year, online, Stanford Certificate Program in Creative Writing in 2013.
