From Library Journal
This pleasant series continues as sleuth J.W. Jackson and wife Zee become clandestine surrogate parents to the president's teenaged daughter. When someone kills the reporter who discovers her whereabouts, J.W. fears a conspiracy. A winner as usual.
Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
President Callahan (read Clinton) and his family are vacationing on Martha's Vineyard when J. W. Jackson encounters the First Teen during a predawn excursion for bluefish. Cricket Callahan (read Chelsea) and her entourage of Secret Service agents come to spend a few days with J. W. and his wife, Zee, allowing her a normal teenager's summer, however briefly. Cricket needs protection even more than usual, forcing J. W. to thwart a plan to attack her. Jackson's relations with women--Zee, Cricket, Cricket's female Secret Service guard Karen--are warm, easygoing, and just a bit tangled by the Mars/Venus thing. Beyond the appealing characters and the Clinton parallels, the real fun here comes in meandering across the island and its culture. Craig knows the Vineyard intimately and uses that knowledge in intriguing ways. A nice addition to this series, but it could have used a better--and more Clintonesque--title. GraceAnne A.

But the friend is the daughter of president of the United States who is eluding her Secret Service watchdogs. Cricket Callahan has been receiving threating letters for over a year, which began during the first family's previous vacation stay on the island.
J.W. and Zee end up with two Virginia cousins who want to taste all the delights of the island as private citizens. It takes some suspicious questions and fancy moves for J.W. and his bride to provide for their sudden quests.
As usual Philip R. Craig gave his fans an enjoyable read full of allisions, crime detection, and island lore.
