Description:   Buried bones, a missing eco-activist, and a deadly fire? It’s not what Maya Rivers bargained for when she moved to the coastal city of Newport, Oregon, seeking a fresh start and a reunion with her estranged brother, Harley. Yet when Harley is accused of an unthinkable crime, Maya insists on adding amateur sleuth to her career options. It isn’t long before she discovers an eerie clue . . . but the closer she gets to the truth, the closer a murderer follows.  (Adventure Publications, 2013)
