A RIP-ROARING, PULSE-POUNDING FLORIDA PUZZLER…
â€œA ripping good yarn â€¦ an exciting tale.â€ â€”Publishers Weekly
â€œ… an imaginative plot, some rousing action, a black-hearted villain, a cute kid, some gently ironic humor, and a heroine who’s appealing without being perfect.â€ â€”Booklist
As intricate as a fishermanâ€™s net, Riptide fairly writhes with sinister delightsâ€”family secrets, family feuds, lost family fortunes, betrayals, puzzles, sunken treasureâ€¦ and murder, of course. With a bit of illicit romance and treachery thrown in for seasoning. This rife atmosphere swirls around New york artist Isabel Anders, whoâ€™s summoned home to tiny St. Elmo, Florida to deal with an emergency: the aunt who raised her has been brutallyâ€”and mysteriouslyâ€”injured.
Isabel arrives to find the family mansion in ruins, her aunt living in a trailer, and, dangerous as a cottonmouth, the lover she left at sixteen just where he used to be. Waiting for her. Except now heâ€™s got a grudge against her, a secret of his own, and some unsavory companions. Just when Isabelâ€™s aunt seems to be getting better (but before sheâ€™s able to talk again) she dies just as mysteriously as she was injured. Suspecting murder, Isabel quickly ties her auntâ€™s death to another.
But to find the killer, she has to hack her way through a small-town jungle of intrigue and several generations of interrelated secrets, producing hours of pulse-pounding delight for the confirmed puzzle fan.
WHO WILL LIKE IT: Fans of Laura Lippman, Kate Atkinson, intelligent cozies like those by G.M. Malliett, Elizabeth Zelvin, and Gillian Roberts, British puzzlemeisters like the great Dorothy L. Sayers herself, all BBC mysteries, and of course, Michaela Thompsonâ€™s own Hurricane Season.
