Book Description

Looking for some peace in her life, FBI Special Agent Cassidy McKenna leaves the Bureau, retreats to a sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay, and struggles with the recent death of her husband and her shaken faith in God. When her former partner, Jake, is assaulted and nearly killed and then her marina is torched, Cass knows she must find out why. She believes the crimes are connected and unofficially investigates, not knowing that she is both the hunter and the hunted. She must connect the evidence, help Jake deal with his brain injury, and find the perpetrator before she becomes the next victim.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

My husband took up sailing when I was past my adventurous stage. As much as I love the water and the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay, the uncertainties of sailing were just not my speed. Instead of seeing the beautiful cormorants, the lovely water, or the blue sky, I saw our children as orphans! Or me, falling out of our small boat and being unable to get back aboard!
I was, in short, a pain in the neck.
Nevertheless, I tried to be a good sport, and I did a lot of sailing with him, on "Adventure," the 14-foot Capri, and "Take Two," the 32-foot Endeavour he still owns. And, by the way, in the Virgin Islands, where we rented bare boats.
Somewhere along the line, I thought I might like sailing more if I wrote about it. One day, a new harbormaster at our marina told us about the Alberg he'd rescued. It had sunk at its slip, and he had bought it for salvage, pumped it out, re-floated and restored it.
In his story, the idea for Bloody Point was birthed. 
Larry worked at the FBI Academy for more than 27 years. Our kids grew up appearing in his training films--most often as innocent bystanders, once as a bad guy. He made sure the FBI details and the sailing was authentic. I made sure you'd love the characters ... and the cormorants!

5.0 out of 5 stars A spellbinding murder mystery November 19, 2006
By Nina
Bloody Point is a page turner from the first page. It is a gripping story of intrigue, deceit, lost love, tragedy, with realistic spiritual challenges and blessings. The local history of the Chesapeake Bay along with intricacies of sailing bring a special flavor to the story. Highly recommended to anyone who likes a murder mystery or detective story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised to enjoy it so much February 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I am not a thriller reader. Cozies, yes. But this novel had me pulled in from page one, caring about both Cassie and her FBI partner, Jake. One thing that made me continue through the thriller was that much of the violence, while detailed, was enough 'off camera' for me to continue reading. I knew horrible things were happening, but I only had to envision as much as I was capable of.

I would willingly and evenly eagerly read another story about these characters.

But it wasn't only the characters that kept me motivated, but the sense of place that Linda White so eloquently portrays. Having been many of the places in the novel, I can say that she caught them spot on.

You will savor every page of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars bloody point March 19, 2006
By M. A.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a great book with a fast moving story. I liked that Cassie had a supportive, involved father who had wisdom to share with her. Cassie worked hard to find answers to her questions, even when it meant putting herself in danger. I had a hard time putting this book down. It is easy reading, and kept my interest. This book dealt well with several topics such as divorce, death, depression, and finding faith.

This story would be appropriate for fifteen year olds and up.

Ms White developed a great book. The characters and dialogue are real, the plot is solid with interesting sub plots woven in. I especially liked her use of the Chesapeake area, and her knowledge of the local people and history. I definitely recommend this book.

Linda White has a talent for writing mystery thrillers that are appropriate for all ages and still keep the reader on edge. She has proven that it doesn't require hard sex to write first rate mysteries. Linda is obviously completely familiar with her setting; capable of describing it in detail. Whether are familiar with "The Eastern

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fresh Face for the genre January 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
For those who enjoy this genre, this author brings a fresh perspective. The book has all the plot turns, excitement and intrigue we expect. But instead of the gratuitous - and totally unnecessary and often offensive - sex scenes, the characters have genuine encounters with Christ. Contrary to what the world wants us to believe, Christians are found in every walk of life -even in the FBI!. They have jobs, they have families, they have struggles with the world and even with their faith. What a marvelous story. What vivid pictures of Virginia and the Chesapeake. Well done, Linda White. This book left me eager for your next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Author Hits the Mark September 12, 2005
What a joy! Don't you just love it when you "discover" a great new treasure?

If you're looking for a new suspense author, who writes with a solid spiritual thread, you need look no further. Linda White, with her first published novel, will not disappoint. The strength of her research adds a powerful element of believability, and her main character, Cassie McKenna, becomes a woman you will want to hear from again.

I took this book with me on a quick trip to Aspen, along with another "just in case". I didn't need the other one.

If you read this book, you will join me in eagerly waiting for Linda White's next.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hard to put down...Had me intrigued immediately. Love when an author has a list of characters in the beginning. Great story line, good adventure, light on religious quote but useful in the story. Hope there are more like this one
