Overview

Book #3 of Christine Kling's Seychelle Sullivan series is loosely based on the real South Florida murder of Greek immigrant tycoon Gus Boolis, once the owner of South Florida's Sun Cruz Casino Gambling boats. In Seychelle’s new caper, she may just be in over her head when murder and corruption come bobbing to the surface.<br /><br />Since kindergarten, Seychelle and her best friend, Molly, had been as close as sisters. Molly even dated Seychelle’s brother. But it all ended suddenly when Nick Pontus, a slick, older, up-and-coming entrepreneur, came along. A smitten Molly quit school, married her new beau, and never spoke to Seychelle again. After thirteen years, it still stings. <br /><br />Seychelle didn’t see the sniper who picked Nick off at the helm of his yacht, but she knows that there are plenty of people in South Florida who wanted to see the gambling-boat tycoon dead: the Russian mobsters looking for a piece of his casino action, the Indian gamers who resent his competition, and the ecological activists fighting his plans to develop Fort Lauderdale’s waterfront. But it’s Molly whom the cops zero in on. And despite her bitter feelings and against her better judgment, when her back-from-the-blue friend asks for help, Seychelle can’t just weigh anchor and cruise. She’s got to dive in.<br /><br />What she finds is a money-skimming scam aboard Nick’s flagship gambling boat, Nick’s new trophy wife turned merry rich widow, and Nick and Molly’s teenage son, a scared kid with a big secret . . . and a killer on his trail. Protecting the boy, proving Molly’s innocence, and navigating between squalls of gunfire add up to a tall order as salvage jobs go. But like any good captain, Seychelle will never abandon ship. Even if it means risking her life.

    For Those Who Like Sailing

    This book will especially appeal to those persons who actually sail boats. There are a few passages concerning that. The murder which starts off the book, is that of Nick Pontus, a wealthy man, formerly married to a once close friend of Seychelle Sullivan, a salvage boat operator, and main character. She has a lot of help in solving the murder. The current Mrs. Joyce Pontus is a real unpleasant person, as is her brother, Captain Richard, who fancies himself a great country western singer and songwriter. There are a few coincidences which come to light at the end of the book, which is fairly interesting. I don't know that I would read another book by this author, and the fact that it is 600 pages would probably put off book club members.

    If you like suspense, you'll LOVE Seychelle Sullivan!

    The only problem I have with this series is that there is only one more to read! Ms Kling has captured the essence of the sea-going crowd in her settings, the intensity of suspense in her plots, and the intellect of curiosity in her well-developed solutions. In the genre of Travis McGee and Matt Helm, if you read Janet Evanovich, Marcia Cross, Donald Hamilton, Sue Grafton, or John McDonald, you'll love Christine Kling!

    Lots of twists and turns as the plot develops. Seychelle's family ties begin to develop further and you get a deeper look into her personality.

    Well written. Authentic Florida locations. Real sailing terminol

    Well written. Authentic Florida locations. Real sailing terminology. Along the lines of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone but no salad and pasta fillers.
