Crescent Beach has something for everyone who enjoys sitting by a fire on a cold evening, or outside on a porch and reading a good murder mystery. There is also the potential for a second book in the series. It is a book about perceptions, about police officers, newspaper men and women and the Russian mob from Chicago. It begins with a murder in Chicago and then takes off on a journey that covers the small town of Crescent Beach, Florida, sailing in Bahamian waters and Savannah, Georgia. Who comes out of this tale alive is anyone’s guess.
