From Publishers Weekly
At the start of Kling's salty if at times meandering fourth Florida suspense thriller (after Bitter End
), tugboat captain Seychelle Sullivan, who inherited her dad's business three years earlier, is still resisting advanced GPS technology. Her more successful competitors, like upstart Neville Pinder, have no compunction about using it, while such unsavory developments as an increase in insurance fraud (an unhappy client is suing her) have her questioning her future. When her friend Nestor Frias runs a millionaire's yacht aground in Key West, Nestor insists the GPS navigation system was somehow compromised. While Seychelle is towing the yacht to Fort Lauderdale, Nestor's killed in a windsurfing accident that his pregnant widow insists was murder. An unexpected reunion with an old childhood friend, Ben Baker, once a nerd, now a hottie, provides some romantic tension. A shocking resolution to this solid tale of nautical adventure will catch most readers by surprise. (Mar.)

When tugboat captain Seychelle Sullivan agrees to tow a friend's disabled yacht from Key West to Ford Lauderdale, she is confronted with a mystery: Was the yacht deliberately run aground by pirates? Then, when her friend is murdered, Seychelle decides that this might be her final case; the prospect of getting out of the salvage-amateur sleuth business is looking pretty good. But first she has to solve her friend's murder, and that proves to be tougher, and more deadly, than she anticipated. This is the fourth installment in this interesting (if not especially remarkable) series, and although fans will dive right in, newcomers might wonder whether the character warrants an entire series built around her. Recommend this one to fans of the series and perhaps to devoted readers of nautical mysteries. David PittCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
