Did She or Didn't She?...In a Perfect Crime, the Evidence May Be Hiding the Truth: What started as a carefree sailing holiday has ended in terror and disbelief for Stan and Emily Breedlove as they find themselves trapped and helpless in the dead of night, their boat buffeted without mercy by an angry sea and torrential winds. Stan now clings to life after being medevac'd to Trinity Regional Hospital. He is in a coma and not expected to live despite excellent care by the hospital's diligent staff. The Countywide Police Department is convinced that Dr. Emily Breedlove, Stan's wife of over thirty years, is responsible, and they don't think she acted alone. Sgt. David O'Malley and his Countywide team are determined to discover the evidence that will prove them right. Paul Stempler, the Breedlove's attorney, is racing against the clock to counter O'Malley's efforts. Is his client innocent, or is she the victim of a multiple personality disorder? Stempler doesn't have a clue and must rely on his skill and instincts in trusting an aging sea captain, his young first mate, and a small-town librarian to sort out the truth -- a truth that will elude them until they can discover a way to pick apart the shroud of treachery and deceit that surrounds it.
Set in the northwest Florida panhandle in and around Pensacola, Florida, and the Perdido Key-Gulf Shores area, Red Right Returning is a story of intrigue, deception, and providence that will keep you guessing to the very end.
John G. Werner grew up on the Florida Gulf Coast. During his youth, he learned the waters in and around Pensacola through his father's love of boats and the sea. Graduating in 1970 from Emory University, Mr. Werner worked as an instructional designer and systems documentation specialist in Atlanta for 24 years. After returning to Pensacola in 2003, Mr. Werner rekindled his own love of the sea and sailing by acquiring the Black Swan, a 43-foot C&C Landfall that took fourth in class in the 2010 Regata al Sol, a 54-year-old biannual race between Pensacola, Florida, and Isla Mujeres, Mexico.
