When small town reporter Adelaide Larkin is assigned to cover the worst hurricane to strike Virginia's coastline in history, she discovers more than one storm brewing. Political intrigue follows the aftermath of Hurricane Jewel as an unscrupulous developer finagles the business deal of the millennium. Adelaide gets on the trail of miscreant elected officials pandering to political payoffs rather than rescuing hurricane victims. As she delves deeper, she becomes entangled in other dangerous dealings: searching for hidden art treasures stolen by Nazi soldiers in occupied Greece. When she finds the link between the WWII mystery and the hurricane disaster, she must flee for her life. She reaches the Pindos Mountains in Northwestern Greece, territory controlled by a Greek mobster, a man whom Adelaide learns has been orchestrating much of what's happened to her. Is he demon or angel? As she discovers the answer, she loses her heart in a love story that's a dangerous but thrilling ride to the truth.

This is a page turner with entertaining dialogue and an enjoyable protagonist. The young reporter IS NOT cliched. I liked the mystery starting in the middle of a hurricane, then going to the Blue Ridge Mountians and ending up in Greece. Good romance and dialogue. The pace is brisk and the mystery good. This book has everything but the kitchen sink.
