"This mystery is as creepy as its cover. Page One sucks you into a sultry, sexy night in a thatched roof bar on a Florida riverbank. Three pages later something gruesome happens, and you're hooked like a fish. Snook Wallow is smart and suspenseful." - Myers R, Verified Purchaser

Fans of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum Novels, Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone Novels, Robin James' Cass Leary, and TV's Law and Order will love Janet Heijens' Cate Stokes and her drive to overturn the wrongfully imprisoned...and bring the real killers to justice.
Got to look for All these characters again. Drop my phone in my face till I really have to go to sleep with my glasses off. Great suspenseful writing. I also thought was Simmons, but yup she kept perp in question right up til end. She also twisted Ricky around on us ... Bad guy.
