Overview

What if an actress, appearing in an Ibsen play, eerily finds herself caught up in a real life drama which mirrors the play, but involves murders and a threat to her own life?

In this story actress Lorelei Crane, who is performing in a play in nearby Apalachicola, is asked by her friend Detective Homer McBride to help solve a suspicious homicide which takes place at the famed Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park. The murder may be tied to an environmental and political conflict surrounding Wakulla and a nearby fictitious Graham Springs.

Wakulla Springs in Northwest Florida is one of the largest and deepest fresh water springs in the world. The clarity of the water was made famous by many underwater films, its caverns have been described by divers as the Mt. Everest of caves, and the Wakulla River—formed by the springs—contains an extraordinary diversity of wildlife. Today, Wakulla Springs is rarely clear and its water quality is fast degrading. Scientists and politicians have differing views about the problem.

As in the author’s previous book, Murder on the Prairie: A North Florida Mystery, protagonist Crane once again finds parallels between real life and the plot of the play in which she is starring—Ibsen’s, An Enemy of the People. This time, however, Crane’s amateur sleuthing may end her life.
This mystery should entertain and inform anyone interested in the Northwest Florida scene especially fresh water springs, the gulf coastal region, and the charming fishing town of Apalachicola.

With a nod to both Henrick Ibsen and Agatha Christie, theater lovers will enjoy an inside look as Lorelei prepares for her role in what she increasingly feels is the shadow of a real life murder investigation. The Ibsen play is staged at the historic Dixie Theatre in Apalachicola. Underwater divers will find action scenes and references to real cave diving expeditions at Wakulla Springs.

This novel continues some of the characters found in Murder on The Prairie as well as a number of new and complex characters. In Murder at Wakulla Springs readers will be treated to a fast paced story of danger, romance, humor, and intrigue.
