Death on the High Seas
About the Book
When Special Agent Dick Hartmann is invited to enjoy a free vacation on a cruise hosted by an insurance company, he jumps at the chance. After inviting his friend and fellow agent, Coleen Ryan, to come along, Hartmann boards the Pacific Wonder without any idea that he is about to once again become immersed in a brutal crime. When a murder occurs aboard the cruise ship, Hartmann and Coleen soon realize that all the ship’s passengers are linked in some fashion. One of the passengers happens to be the attractive head of a Mexican drug cartel whose path crossed with that of Hartmann and his squad in a previous case. As the investigation moves from the ship to San Francisco, New York, the Cayman Islands, Europe, and India, Hartmann and his team of experts soon realize there is much more to the case than a brutal murder, including international money laundering and lust. As their professional relationship leads to much more, Hartmann and Coleen must race against time to solve the case. Will they be successful or will their investigation remain open forever, leaving a murderer free to strike again? Death on the High Seas is the gripping tale of a seasoned FBI agent’s quest to solve a murder case aboard a cruise ship, with help from his capable squad and his beautiful partner.
