Synopsis

"Dawson's suspenseful story builds momentum like an ocean wave. Readers are advised to dive right in." Publishers Weekly

“Mother/daughter feuds, family solidarity, an ecological mystery: Dawson blends these familiar ingredients with a chef’s élan.” Kirkus Reviews

Even private eyes take vacations. So Jeri Howard heads for Monterey for some much-needed rest and relaxation.

Some vacation. Some sicko is mutilating pelicans. Her mother’s fancy restaurant is being sabotaged. And Jeri's cousin Bobby is the number one suspect when his girlfriend’s body washes ashore on the rocks near Big Sur.

It’s never a good idea to turn your back on the ocean.
