As a cadet with the Arizona Highway Patrol, Hui-Chien got hands-on experience and some street-cred with the officers while she worked toward a degree in Criminal Justice. Homicide Detective was her goal—until a blistering hot August day when a routine dispatch to a traffic accident changed her life forever.
Michael “Murph” Murphy and his girlfriend, Lindsay Davis, weren’t looking for a real estate investment, but they knew a great deal when they saw one. Mallard Cove Marina was ripe for the picking, but they weren’t the only ones who knew it. A shadowy bomber wants to kill their deal, and them along with it. But with the help of several friends, including Murph’s old boss and best friend Casey Shaw and his fiancée Dawn McAllister, they might just manage to stay alive long enough to close the deal. Will a wild band of marina charter boat crews pitch in to help, or will they leave Murph and Lindsay beached as they dodge bullets and shrapnel?
