When former Miami homicide detective Jane Bunker left her big-city life for Green Haven, Maine, she thought she was also leaving behind the pollution, noise, and dead bodies. Well, as any New Englander will tell you, two out of three ain't bad. After solving a murder and surviving a couple of attempts on her life (recounted in the bestselling mystery Slipknot), Jane Bunker believes she's finally earned a respite from murder and intrigue. But if she thinks it's time for her to soak up the peace and quiet she's been seeking, she should think again. On her way back from a routine investigation into some smashed equipment, Jane takes a moment to appreciate the beauty of a Maine autumn - there's the sublime rainbow foliage of the highlands, the serene reflections of the setting sun on the bay's gentle waves, the elegant silhouette of a lobster boat on the bay. But her calm lasts only as long as it takes for Jane to make the chilling discovery that the vessel is in serious trouble with nobody aboard - and that its owner has vanished without a trace... And that's the least of the mysteries. A young mariner dead of a heroin overdose; the real agenda of a charismatic Indian leader; a missing bait iron and a corpse painted red - nothing is what it seems.

Professional reviews

"Former Miami homicide detective Jane Bunker hopes for an easier life as deputy sheriff of a coastal town in Maine. But that's not to be. Soon Bunker suspects murder in the disappearance of a local fisherman. International drug trafficking collides with local politics to send her on a watery chase to find the killer. Sound effects mimicking marine radio conversations help listeners feel like they, too, are out to sea. Sandra Burr shifts skillfully through a collection of characters ranging from a sassy waitress to a drunken sea captain. However, Jane herself sounds a bit dowdy, a characteristic that clashes with the sexual friskiness she exhibits when a handsome scientist helps the investigation. Also, a faster pace would have made the mystery seem less bogged down with extraneous details. J.T. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
