Here's what others are saying: "Tension is fast-paced in this involving account." -- Bookwatch "Connie Shelton gets better with every book she writes." The Midwest Book Review In Charlie's words, "Vacations mean different things to different people. There's the planning, the packing, the anticipation. Then there's the late arrival, the sunburn, the fuzzy pictures. In my case, add a romance with a good-looking pilot and fourteen stitches in the back of my skull." Gilbert Page was a slick businessman from California, with an alcoholic wife, a spoiled-rotten son, and a blonde on his arm. Charlie is riding front seat on a helicopter tour when she and the pilot spot Page's lifeless body lying on the rugged rocks of Kauai's NaPali coast. Drake is the pilot flying the tour helicopter that gives Charlie her aerial vantage point. When the flight is over, Charlie assumes her acquaintance with Drake is, too. Within twenty-four hours, though, Drake's friend and employer, Mack Garvey, is arrested for Page's murder. Although Charlie would rather avoid the whole mess, Drake persuades her to help clear Mack. The investigating officer has an old grudge against Mack, and it doesn't help that Mack knew the victim and owed him a half million dollars. Charlie roots out the suspects one by one, never guessing that her own life will be in danger before her vacation is over. "A good selection for all collections." -- Library Journal "Shelton has created a female sleuth with an original slant to her methods." -- Small Press Magazine
