Description

This high-seas romp from Deverell's Newfoundland to Colombia to Miami features undercover plots, double-dealings, and triple betrayal. This quirky murder mystery features an assortment of colorful characters, including a band of Newfoundland smugglers, an inspector obsessed with their capture, a day-dreaming police scientist infatuated with a voluptuous femme fatale, and a multimillion-dollar cargo of marijuana on a leaky freighter. Proving once again that fact is stranger than fiction, this novel is based upon one of the author's celebrated legal trials.
